About the Show

Kenan follows the life of busy single dad Kenan Williams (Kenan Thompson), who is juggling a high-profile job as host of Atlanta morning show Wake Up With Kenan! He's also raising two adorable pre-teen daughters – the too-smart Aubrey (Dani Lane) and the silly, unpredictable Birdie (Dannah Lane).

As Kenan moves on from the loss of his wife a year earlier, his live-in father-in-law Rick (Don Johnson), his brother/manager/roommate Gary (Chris Redd) and his colorful co-workers all have strong opinions on the best way for him to live his life. 

Rick was a carefree sax player when his own daughter was young and missed out on a lot of her childhood. He's trying to make up for lost time as a larger-than-life grandad despite his penchant for getting into trouble.

Gary has long been in his older brother's shadow and he's ready to branch out on his own - with dating, business development and potentially his own place. 

Kenan excels at his job with the help of his driven executive producer, Mika (Kimrie Lewis), and despite his ambitious co-host, Tami (Taylor Louderman). Mika can be tightly wound, especially when Gary, as Kenan's not-so-managerial manager, tries to insert himself. She's a steady force and confidante to Kenan as he manages a demanding career and chaotic personal life.

Lorne Michaels, Kenan Thompson, Andrew Singer, David Caspe, Kenny Smith Jr., Lisa Muse Bryant and Bryan Tucker serve as executive producers. The series was created by Jackie Clarke and David Caspe.

"Kenan" is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Broadway Video.
