Cedric The Entertainer’s ‘Neighborhood’ Runs On All Kinds Of Diversity

Cedric the Entertainer’s new CBS show, The Neighborhood, would appear to be a show about race relations, since its premise finds Max Greenfield’s character moving into a predominantly African-American community in Los Angeles. However, Cedric the Entertainer told us it’s about much more than that, because it also takes on generational issues, especially when it comes to built-in biases that older people tend to acquire over the years.

The Neighborhood airs Monday nights at 8/7c on CBS.

For ‘Young Sheldon’s’ Zoe Perry, Heredity Was On The Résumé

It was a master stroke of casting: To play a younger version of an established character, why not seek out the original actor’s daughter? That’s exactly what the producers of Young Sheldon did in finding young Sheldon Cooper’s mother. On The Big Bang Theory, the role is played perfectly by Laurie Metcalf. Metcalf’s daughter, Zoe Perry, is an actress as well. As it turns out, she has a knack for acting just like her mother, and Perry says that certainly helps give her version of the character a lot of credibility.

Young Sheldon airs Thursday nights at 8:30/7:30c, right after The Big Bang Theory, on CBS.

For Max Greenfield, Moving Into ‘The Neighborhood’ Is A Moving Experience

At a time when diversity is becoming essential to a lot of Hollywood projects, it’s not surprising at all to see more and more television shows showing diversity in their casts and crews. The Neighborhood is a prime example, featuring Max Greenfield as a Midwesterner who instantly learns what it’s like to be in the minority when he moves to a racially diverse L.A. neighborhood. As his character adjusts to his new situation, Greenfield says the lessons he’s personally been learning from the show are literally changing his life.
