The Neighborhood

"The Neighborhood" stars Cedric the Entertainer in a comedy about what happens when the friendliest guy in the Midwest moves his family to a Los Angeles neighborhood where not everyone looks like him or appreciates his extreme neighborliness. Dave Johnson is a good-natured, professional conflict negotiator. When his wife Gemma gets a job as a school principal in L.A., they move from Michigan with their young son Grover, unfazed that their new dream home is located in a community quite different from their small town. Their opinionated next-door neighbor Calvin Butler is wary of the newcomers, certain that the Johnsons will disrupt the culture on the block. However, Calvin's gracious wife Tina rolls out the welcome wagon; their chipper younger son Marty thinks that the Johnsons could be good for the community; and their unemployed older son Malcolm finally finds in Dave someone who understands him. Dave realizes that fitting into their new community is more complex than he expected, but if he can find a way to connect with Calvin, they have an excellent chance of making their new neighborhood their home.
