The Gary Owen Show chronicles the life of America's favorite honorary Black comedian Gary Owen and his hilariously offbeat multiracial family. He broke through as the first Caucasian host of BET's Comic View, and also had star turns in the Think Like A Man films, Ride Along, and Meet the Blacks. Now he's bringing his own interracial and blended family to BET in a 30-minute unscripted series that is colorful, truthful and hysterical. Gary is constantly pushing the limits of what is politically correct when it comes to kids in small-town Ohio.
Status: To Be Determined
