What You Need to Know About the Grand Crew Cast

Your favorite characters will all be back!

By Jackie Manno
Nicole Byer Doesn't Want To Label 'Grand Crew' A 'Black Sitcom'

If you’re looking for a comedy that’s lighthearted and touching, look no further than Grand Crew. Created by Brooklyn Nine-Nine writer Phil Augusta Jackson, the show follows the story of six tight-knit young professionals living in Los Angeles who help each other navigate life in their favorite hangout spot.

How to Watch

Watch Grand Crew on NBC and Peacock.  

“It just felt like there was an opportunity to have a hangout show with a Black cast that had the energy of Happy Endings and Insecure, something that was true to our experience but with a lot of jokes in it,” Jackson told The Guardian. "This show is a result of me hanging out at a wine bar with my friends."

Here’s everything you need to know about the wine-loving characters and the actors who play them.

Who is in the Grand Crew cast?

Echo Kellum as Noah Koles

Noah is a hopeless romantic with his head in the clouds who is always dating. He thinks his life is a movie and is eager to settle down, and he's very close with his sister Nicky (Nicole Byer).

“The relationship between Nicky and Noah as brother and sister is something we want to use to our advantage," Jackson told Variety. "Having that familiar dynamic is something we feel is very unique for this particular friend group."

Before Grand Crew, Kellum had a recurring role as Curtis Holt in Arrow.
