The Peach Review® had the opportunity to talk one-on-one with Bounce TV’s Angell Conwell who stars on the show, “Family Time.” For those who aren’t familiar with her role as “Lisa Stallworth” on this Bounce TV original series, you can also catch her on The Young and Restless (Y&R) as the high-powered, fashioned lawyer “Leslie Michaelson” taking on the Abbott and Newman families.
Family Time is in its 4th season and has experienced so much success that they really wanted to place a strong emphasis on the holiday season for 2016. What does Thanksgiving mean to you? Well to Angell it gives her those, “feel good moments” and she guarantees the new episode will give you that on Tuesday November 22 at 9pm ET/PT on Bounce TV. She also shared with me how much the cast is committed to giving their viewers great comedy each week with great sitcom situations true to life. “We love to help our fans escape from any negativity that they could be experiencing. Holidays are a time to all come together and reflect on what we are grateful for, and to see how present love really is for all of us.”
This Thanksgiving episode begins as everyone begins to dread having a slice of Beverly’s (Judyann Elder) rhubarb pie. Later that evening, Devin (Bentley Kyle Evans Jr.) invites Willie, a homeless man over for dinner. Rodney Perry (Madea’s Big Happy Family), Michael Colyar (Black-ish) and Chante Moore (R&B singer) guest star.

Family Time comedically chronicles the lives of the Stallworth family, headed by the dad Tony, a struggling general contractor played by Omar Gooding, and his wife Lisa, an unfulfilled stay-at-home mom portrayed by Angell Conwell. When they are not battling each other, they are contending with a host of family, friends, and neighbors including their mischievous children Devin (Bentley Kyle Evans, Jr.) and Ebony (Jayla Calhoun), Tony’s financially-challenged best friend Donnie (Clayton Thomas) and Lisa’s feisty sisters Rachel (Tanjareen Thomas) and Lori (Paula Jai Parker).
The half-hour situation comedy was created by Bentley Kyle Evans (The Jamie Foxx Show, Martin) and is produced by Evans and partner Trenten Gumbs (Love That Girl), both of whom produce the successful Bounce TV original series In The Cut.
