REL is a comedy television series produced by FOX. The show stars Lil Rel Howery as a fictionalized version of himself, a newly divorced father who is trying to rebuild his life while dealing with his dysfunctional family and friends. The show primarily revolves around Rel’s life and how he navigates his new life after a painful divorce. He is a devoted father who wants nothing but the best for his kids but struggles to cope with his situation. Sinbad co-stars as Rel’s father, a well-meaning but troublesome role model who is constantly stepping out of bounds.

The series features a talented cast of actors, including Jordan L. Jones, Jess "Hilarious" Moore, and Jessica "Jess Hilarious" Moore. Each of them plays a crucial role in Rel’s life, offering him their unique perspectives on his journey of self-discovery.

Rel’s best friend, Brittany, is played by Hilarious, and her overtly sexual nature often lands her in trouble. She is always ready to take on the world and live with no regrets. Brittany’s younger brother Nat, played by Jones, is a slacker with a heart of gold, a terrible work ethic, and an even worse sense of direction.

Moore stars as Rel's estranged wife, whom he is still trying to win back while facing the criticism of their former therapist. Meanwhile, Jess Moore plays Tiffany, Rel’s tough-love sister. She is a successful nurse, who always has her brother’s back, but never hesitates to criticize him if he is doing something wrong.

The series explores Rel’s relationships with his family and friends, as well as his own personal growth. While the show is primarily a comedy, it is also a heartwarming portrayal of how family and friends can help us overcome the toughest times in our lives.

The show is set in a predominantly African-American neighborhood on the West Side of Chicago, and the writers do an excellent job of incorporating the local culture and slang into the show. The show's humor is often derived from the realistic and relatable banter between the characters, as well as the awkward moments that arise in everyday life.

The series tackles several issues faced by the African-American community, such as police brutality, gun violence, and the importance of family. The show is an excellent platform for exploring difficult topics through a comedic lens, making it both entertaining and educational.

As a whole, REL offers a refreshing take on the classic sitcom format. The show's focus on African-American culture, humor, and themes makes it a unique and valuable addition to the television landscape. The show has a loyal fan base, which is reflected in its positive reception from audiences and critics alike.

In conclusion, REL is a captivating comedy series that offers an entertaining and heartfelt portrayal of a family and their struggles. It features a fantastic cast of actors, excellent writing, and direction, and is a must-watch for anyone who loves comedy and drama.
