Mike Epps Teams with Queen Latifah For New Series

Mike Epps bounces back quick. Following the cancellation of his sitcom, Uncle Buck, the comedian-turned-actor is teaming up with T.I. and Queen Latifah for a new series.

Produced by Queen Latifah, ‘The Trap’, is an indie comedy that centers on T.I.’s character who returns back to his hometown of Atlanta to help save the family restaurant that’s been run down by his mother and brother (Mike Epps).

Chris Robinson, the man behind BET’s New Edition film, will take on the role as director. Nile Evans penned the script as well as developed the original story alongside Epps.

Production is looking to start in the fall.
