CBS’ description: “Bob runs his family’s successful, highly competitive sock company with his mother, Dottie, his sister, Christine, and his younger brother, Douglas (Jones). When the stress of the job lands him in the hospital, he meets Abishola, his kind, hard-working nurse whom he’s immediately drawn to. Now all Bob needs to do is convince her to give him a chance, which will take some doing since they couldn’t be more different. After coming to America from Nigeria to find a better life for her and her son, Dele, a straight-A student, Abishola lives in a small apartment with her super-protective relatives, Auntie Olu and Uncle Tunde. Abishola’s close friends include fellow nurse Gloria and Kemi. Undaunted by Abishola’s lack of initial interest or the vast differences in their backgrounds, Bob is determined to win Abishola’s heart, in this comedic examination of immigrant life in America. Recurring cast: Gina Yashere (Kemi). Guest stars: Raymond Ma (Wati); Kirsten Eggers (Principal Herman); Tangie Ambrose (Mr. Lester); Ivar Brogger (Doctor); Omar Adam (Paramedic); Minerva Garcia (Nurse).”
