TV's Favorite Family Man Terry Crews Proves Life is Never Dull When He Turns Cameras On His Own Family in This New Original Series
PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 14 -- Everyone may hate Chris, but everyone loves America's favorite TV father and funny man, Terry Crews. And now viewers have a chance to know and love his own family of seven on the new original series THE FAMILY CREWS, premiering Sunday, February 21 at 9:00 p.m.*
A former professional football player turned successful Hollywood actor, Terry is anything but your typical superstar courtesy of his eclectic and ever-changing brood ranging in ages from 22 to 3 years old and his wife of 20 years, Rebecca -- who keeps him grounded on a daily basis. On the outside, the Crews' are the picture of class and calm. But behind closed doors, there are antics, laughter and sometimes mayhem that seem to drive Daddy Crews crazy until he accepts that fact that he's living on "Crews Control." Viewers will watch the Crews family grow, love, laugh and pray their way through a new chapter in their journey as Terry begins the process of transitioning from Everybody Hate Chris to a bon-a-fide action star and Rebecca, who put her dreams on hold to support Terry and raise their family, begins to more aggressively pursue those dreams. From Terry and his wife Rebecca to their five children and family dog Coffee, there is never a dull moment under the Crews' roof.
