About THEM

THEM is an American comedy-drama series based on real people, real issues and real experiences in the lives of the show’s creators, Towonda Kilpatrick and Raymond Raffety.

What happens when black Bohemian playwright Nadine (Kron Moore, Into the Storm) meets white computer geek Richard (David Tiefen, Facts of Life)? Of course, they fall in love and move in together! But on top of the challenges of a new relationship, the couple must grapple with every-day clashes of culture, race, gender, politics, age, class, and sexual identity. It’s a hilarious portrait of honest racial conversations motivated by love. But is there enough of it to keep the hem of this culturally diverse family from unraveling?

Part 1 of the series chronicles Nadine leaving her elegant city condominium for Richard’s mixed-race community in suburbia. Nadine works to adjust to her new environs and Richard’s parenting style, while Richard struggles with Nadine’s bi-polar dog, Bling. During their first dinner party, Nadine and Richard’s friends and family come in contact for the first time and hear the story of how the couple first met online.  Richard’s friends wonder whether he can afford her high maintenance lifestyle. Reid reveals a little too much about Nadine’s sexual history. Ted horrifies his wife with perpetual testosterone therapy-induced erections. Jealous besties, nosy neighbors, and raging teenage hormones are the icing on the cake of an evening not soon to be forgotten.

THEM explores the intricacies of modern love, sex, personal misconceptions, and issues of diversity with uncensored wit and humor. With creators Kilpatrick (Cheezecake Boiz & The Diva) and Raffety, director Chet A. Brewster (Verse & Flow) and co-executive producer Daren Gayle as the helm, THEM is sure to be a hit with audiences of every age and ethnicity.
