Bounce TV , the nation’s first-ever over-the-air broadcast television network for African Americans, will launch a new original series In The Cut – a half-hour situation comedy created by Bentley Kyle Evans (Family Time, The Jamie Foxx Show, Martin) – in a special six-week summer series run Tuesday nights at 9:00 p.m. starting Aug. 25.
The showcenters on Jay Weaver (Wilson) who owns several businesses in a strip mall in San Diego and spends most of his time working in his barbershop, Jay’s Chop Shop. Jay also co-owns a beauty salon a few doors away – Nadine’s Shop – named for his ex-wife (Harry) who still runs it. One day, a young man named Kenny Clark (Lawson) shows up out of nowhere claiming to be Jay’s 31-year-old illegitimate son from a short-lived fling. Kenny sticks around and begins to take on a role in the family business as he and Jay start to bond. Jay’s long-time sidekick Clevon “Smitty” Smith (Jones) also works at the barber shop and adds to the comedy — as well as the occasional drama — that comes into their lives.
