Actor Will Smith and rapper Jay-Z are among the production team behind the new series, which will air in the middle of the next television season. ABC became the latest broadcast network to introduce a new lineup to advertisers on Tuesday. The network is also reviving ‘The Wonder Years,’ this time with a Black family from Montgomery, Alabama.
