Bounce TV, the first–ever over-the-air broadcast television network designed for African-American audiences announced that season four of the popular, comedy original series, 'Family Time' will premiere on Tues. Oct. 4, 2016, with new episodes every Tuesday night at 9:00 p.m. ET.

'Family Time' is a positive show based on a black family who lives in the suburbs. This sitcom continues to show and prove that it is not your “average” black family show; it’s better. From season one to now, it continuously speaks on real issues and connects with their many viewers.

The half-hour episodes are created and produced by Bentley Kyle Evans (The Jamie Foxx Show, Martin, Love That Girl) and are produced by Evans and partner Trenton Gumbs (Love That Girl).

It chronicles the lives of the Stallworth family who relocated to the suburbs of Windsor Hills, California. High school sweethearts, Tony Stallworth (Omar Gooding), a struggling general contractor, and his wife Lisa (Angell Conwell), an unfulfilled stay-at-home mom, who make up their own rules to marriage, love, and family along the way. They are contending with a host of family, friends, and neighbors including their mischievous children Devin (Bentley Kyle Evans, Jr.)and Ebony (Jayla Calhoun), Tony's financially-challenged best friend Donnie (Clayton Thomas) and Lisa's feisty sisters Rachel (Tanjareen Thomas) and Lori (Paula Jai Parker).

With its longevity and ability to connect with their viewers, Angell Conwell says, "People can appreciate and value that in which they understand. In a nutshell, I feel that if you watch 'Family Time', almost anyone can relate and understand most of the story-lines and characters. You can relate to it."

On the first episode of season four, Lisa gives relationship advice to Tony's friends when he lets her visit the barbershop; Rodney Perry guest stars. Other notable guest appearances this season include A.J. Johnson (House Party), Gloria Govan (Basketball Wives), award-winning singer Chante Moore, Glenn Plummer (Speed, South Central), Michael Colyar (Black-ish), Nicholas Turturro (NYPD Blue) and Laurence Fishburne's son Langston Fishburne making his acting debut.

This season is expected to be bigger and better because it is 13-episodes strong and will also feature Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas themed episodes.

'Family Time' viewership continues to grow and remains one of Bounce TV’s most successful original series. Bounce TV is the only free over the air option for African American viewers. Almost a quarter of African American homes do not have cable or satellite, so Bounce TV is the only source of programming for those viewers.
