If you’ve been sleeping on The Carmichael Showyou need to wake up!

With an all-star cast that includes creator Jerrod Carmichael, Loretta Devine, David Alan Grier, Amber Stevens West, Tiffany Haddish and Lil Rel Howery, the half-hour NBC comedy is picking up steam.

Tackling the Bill Cosby controversy in the season two premiere, the sitcom is unafraid to confront tough subject matters.

“He [Carmichael] touches on such scary issues that people never talk about publicly,” Devine says. “And it’s so needed.”
