NBC has given a six-episode series order to the Jerrod Carmichael comedy, EW has learned.

The untitled multi-camera sitcom is inspired by Carmichael’s relationships with his say-anything, contrarian father (David Alan Grier); his therapist-in training girlfriend (Amber Stevens West); his ever-hustling brother (Lil Rel Howery) and his mother (Loretta Devine) who is always, always, always right with Jesus.

“We’re excited to be going forward to series with Jerrod,” said NBC President Jennifer Salke. “We can’t wait to see how he and his outstanding cast deliver the funny.”

Carmichael and Nick Stoller will write and executive-produce the comedy with Ravi Nandan.
