About this show

Donald and his wife, Marvelous, have been living the American dream since emigrating from Zimbabwe nearly three decades ago. They have a beautiful house and impressive careers, and now one of their daughters is getting married! But when the bride insists on a traditional African wedding ceremony, tensions start to rise. Throw in an eccentric aunt from the old country and a bewildered bridegroom, and soon it's not certain the couple will ever make it down the aisle. Familiar, from Tony Award nominee Danai Gurira (Eclipsed), takes a funny, warmhearted look at tradition, marriage, and what it means to be an American family.
