Rel

FOX | 8:00 pm

It might seem like he’s borrowing a chapter from Jerrod Carmichael, whose "Carmichael Show" he co-starred in (and who’s an executive producer here), but Lil Rel Howery writes his own story by basing this new sitcom on his own life. The fictionalized Rel is a Chicago family man who learns his wife has been unfaithful, then has to give himself a reboot. Howery also plays a second role as an acquaintance who knows all, with veteran comedian Sinbad as Rel’s father. The show’s weekly run starts Sept. 30.
