About this show

If You're Invited to the Cookout follows Ally Smith, a young African-American woman and a recent Yale graduate who returns home to the South Side to introduce her family to her fiancé (Ethan Wells, who is white and from a well-to-do family). Ally is embarrassed by her family's humble beginnings and rambunctious nature. Her family is filled with colorful characters: a cousin who doesn't approve of interracial dating; a stern, disapproving father; and a loud, outspoken grandmother. Will Ally and Ethan survive their first cookout, or will their differences prove too much to handle?
