Lil Rel Howery Comedy Rel Ordered to Series at Fox

Fox's new schedule continues to fill out

Lindsay MacDonald

The Fox lineup continues to fill out with a series order for Rel, a six-camera comedy from Get Out actor Lil Rel Howery.

She show is based on Lil Rel's real life, and he's even given his name to the main character. Lil Rel, a prideful, self-made success who lives by the code to "always believe in yourself and great things will come," finds that attitude put to the test when he learns his wife is having an affair with his own barber. He tries to rebuild his life post-divorce as a long-distance single father on the South Side of Chicago who's on a quest for love, respect and a new barber.
