Rel - Comedy Starring Lil Rel Howery Ordered to Series by FOX

Fox has ordered Lil Rel Howery’s self-titled comedy project to series.

“Rel” hails from writer, executive producer and star Howery, as well as writers and executive producers Kevin Barnett and Josh Rabinowitz and executive producer and showrunner Mike Scully. It sees Howery play a prideful, self-made success who lives by the code to “always believe in yourself and great things will come” but finds that attitude gets put to the test when he learns his wife his having an affair with his barber. He tries to rebuild his life post-divorce as a long-distance single father on the South Side of Chicago who’s on a quest for love, respect, and a new barber. The series is inspired by Howery’s real life.

In addition to Howery, the series will star Sinbad, Jess “Hilarious” Moore, and Jordan L. Jones. “Rel” also has Jerrod Carmichael on-board as an executive producer. Gerry Cohen directed the pilot. The series is produced by 20th Century Fox Television, where Carmichael and Scully are set up under overall deals.


It joins recently picked pilot-to-series multi-camera comedy The Cool Kids as well as the Last Man Standing revival, which is still being finalized. The retirement home-set The Cool Kids had been rumored as a potential companion for LMS on the fall schedule, so Rel could be for a midseason.
