Interviewing the Cast of ‘The Upshaws’: They’re Just Like Our Family

BGN interviews Kim Fields (Regina), Mike Epps (Benny), and Wanda Sykes (Lucretia) for the Netflix series The Upshaws.

Bennie Upshaw (Mike Epps), the head of a Black working-class family in Indianapolis, is a charming, well-intentioned mechanic and lifelong mess just trying his best to step up and care for his family — wife Regina (Kim Fields), their two young daughters (Khali Daniya-Renee Spraggins, Journey Christine) and firstborn son (Jermelle Simon), the teenage son (Diamond Lyons) he fathered with another woman (Gabrielle Dennis) — and tolerate his sardonic sister-in-law (Wanda Sykes), all without a blueprint for success. But the Upshaws are determined to make it work, and make it to the next level, together.

Interviewer: Jeandra LeBeauf
