NEW YORK, NY - March 15, 2011 - Don't call this his comeback - he never left! But the internet declared him dead, his family splintered apart, movie roles became sparse and he lost his home. The only place left for Sinbad to go was up, and not only was he going to do it all over, but he was going to do it right. Now remarried to his ex-wife, he's taking the kids and moving back in with her, ready to take on his revamped role as husband, father and working man. But having his wife and two semi-grown kids ("grids" as he likes to say) back under one roof is driving him crazy! There's way less privacy and way more chaos and drama than anyone had in mind. WE tv's newest reality series, SINBAD: IT'S JUST FAMILY, premieres on Tuesday, April 12 at 10pm ET/PT with six hour-long episodes, immediately following new episodes of BRAXTON FAMILY VALUES.

Fifteen years ago, Sinbad was at the top of his game - hit sitcom, successful talk show, a promising movie career and the perfect family. But then it all went away -shows were canceled, he got divorced and financial crisis hit. But that wasn't the end for him. Sinbad decided things needed to change so he fired his agent, kicked his 30+ person entourage off the payroll and kept his focus on his original passion of stand-up comedy. He remarried his ex-wife, Meredith, and is now leaving his "man cave" behind and moving back into their original home, along with his two grown kids, Paige and Royce.

Readjusting to this new life has its up and downs for everyone in the house. For 25- year-old Paige and 22-year-old Royce, who enjoyed their freedom while living in Sinbad's "man-mansion," it's a bonus that they're able to still tap mom and dad for some added support and home-cooked meals. But as an aspiring singer with a budding career, Paige is itching for more freedom. Royce, a student with music aspirations and a knack for martial arts, doesn't mind his new situation as much, but wants to claim the guesthouse as his own - a constant source of disagreement between him and Sinbad. Meanwhile, Meredith's once clutter-free home is now overrun with boxes upon boxes of Sinbad's belongings - two houses worth! To Meredith, it's useless junk. But to Sinbad, it's meaningful. While Meredith's calm nature balances Sinbad's animated theatrics, the two just as often collide.

SINBAD: IT'S JUST FAMILY reveals the humor and drama that fuels this family as they face financial struggles, privacy issues and the perils of living together as a family once again. From yard sales to family BBQs, financial troubles and inevitable arguments, the series focuses on the story of a modern family that's reunited, dealing with the ups and downs of life together. Working to re-establish his marriage and his career, while simultaneously helping to launch his kids out on their own paths, Sinbad's effort to do it all lends to moments of pure hilarity, in true Sinbad style.

SINBAD: IT'S JUST FAMILY is produced for WE tv by Thinkfactory Media (Gene Simmons Family Jewels, Teach: Tony Danza, Chasing Mummies). Executive producers for Thinkfactory Media: Leslie Greif, Adam Freeman and Adam Reed; Co-executive producers: Sinbad and Chuck Vinson. Executive producer for WE tv: Kate Farrell; SVP of Original Productions & Development: John Miller.
