REL is getting an early post-NFL preview on Sunday, September 9 (following the Fox NFL doubleheader), but potential viewers can watch the full pilot online now. (After this week’s preview, the show has its regular time slot debut on Sunday, September 30 at 9:30/8:30c.)

Per Fox, “REL is a multi-camera comedy starring Lil Rel Howery as a loving husband and father living on the West Side of Chicago, who finds out his wife is having an affair. And not just any affair. An affair with Rel’s own barber. Quite easily the worst person for your wife to sleep with, because as hard it is to find a good spouse, it’s even harder to find a reliable barber. Plus, with the barbershop being one of the epicenters of neighborhood gossip, Rel finds his embarrassing business is known by everyone, including the Pastor (also played by Howery), before Rel can even process the emotions himself. Offering Rel support – that is, when they themselves aren’t butting heads – are Rel’s tough-talking, no-B.S. best friend, BRITTANY (Jess “Hilarious” Moore), and his recently out-of-jail younger brother, NAT (Jordan L. Jones), as well as Rel’s prideful DAD (Sinbad), who perhaps has taken the barber news even harder than Rel. After his beloved kids move to Cleveland with their mom, Rel must begin the difficult task of rebuilding his life as a long-distance dad. He also jumps back into the dating pool – and often finds himself the victim of his own well-intentioned hubris. But, ever the optimist, he continues his search for love, respect…and a new barber.”
