Nigerian-American actor, Anthony Alabi is the star of new Netflix sit-com, ‘Family Reunion’.
‘Family Reunion’ follows the McKellans, a family that decides to leave their glamorous city life and move back to their hometown.
Alongside Alabi, who plays the father, Moz, the show also stars some Hollywood veterans, including Loretta Devine (Grey’s Anatomy) and Tia Mowry (Sister Sister).
Alabi was born to a Nigerian father and Puerto Rican mother, Alabi and was drawn to acting at a young age, but he was forced to choose between that and football.
He soon retired from football and started acting full-time. He has appeared in shows like ‘Bosch’, ‘Modern Family’, ‘Insecure’ and ‘Raven’s Home’.
His role in ‘Family Reunion’ is his first leading role with which he is fast becoming a fan favourite.
On ‘Family Reunion’, Alabi plays Moz McKellan, a retired pro-football player who moves his family from their bustling Seattle city life to live with their hilarious and endearing Southern family in Columbus, Georgia.
Through hot weather, three-hour church services, and grandma M’Dear’s (Loretta Devine) old-school parenting methods, the family learns the value of love and family.
Speaking about the show in an interview, Alabi said, “I think what viewers will get first and foremost is a sense of nostalgia.
“I think you’ll get a throwback to shows like Family Matters and Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
“I think we really wanted to make sure that viewers felt that family dynamic, that sitcom feel, and after that, you’re going to laugh a lot.”

Mariah Carey’s sister sues their mother for forced s3x acts during satanic rituals
Mariah Carey’s troubled sister, Alison is suing their mother for s3xually abusing her as a child.
Alison is accusing her mother of forcing her to perform s3xual acts on strangers during satanic rituals.
Alison Carey accused her mum Patricia of forcing her to perform s3x acts on strangers when she was ten and she also had to watch other children being abused “during middle-of-the-night satanic worship meetings that included ritual sacrifices.”
As a result, Alison, now 57, suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and depression, according to court papers filed in New York.
Alison, who is estranged from her superstar sister, 50, once worked as a prostitute and is HIV positive. Friends insist she is not after Mariah’s fortune — she has lost all her teeth and wants to pay to get them repaired.
Alison’s lawsuit, filed at the State of New York Supreme Court, says:
“Defendant, who is Plaintiff’s mother, allowed and encouraged other male persons whose identities are at present unknown to engage in sexual acts as defined in New York Penal Law, specifically 130.52 (forcible touching), and 130.65 (sexual assault in the first degree), while Plaintiff was approximately 10 years of age.
“Defendant also forced Plaintiff to witness adults engaged in sexual acts with both adults and children during middle-of-the-night satanic worship meetings that included ritual sacrifices.
“As a result of the above Plaintiff has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and major depression, leading her to misuse both legal and illegal drugs in an attempt to suppress the horrific memories, and to undergo extensive professional counselling.
“Plaintiff now demands compensatory money damages for immense psychological and physical damage, mental pain and anguish and intentional infliction of severe emotion distress.”
