Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

The show’s themes include family, faith, and the challanges and rewards of balancing entertainment careers. Coping with a serious illness is also central to the show. 

Positive Role Models

Coffey and Criscilla are a loving, committed couple and dedicated parents. Both are ambitious when it comes to their careers. Coffey is biracial, and Criscilla is White.  

Violence

While there's nothing violent, there are extensive conversations about battling -- and dying from -- cancer in some episodes.There are images of Criscilla’s colostomy bag, and scenes of her undergoing chemo and other related medical challenges.

Sex

There’s some mild innuendo, such as talking about taking clothes off and making out. But most of it is more silly than sexual. 

Language
Consumerism

Coffey Anderson’s music is featured. Logos for L.A.’s Millennium Dance Complex is prominently shown, and YouTube is consistently referenced. The family owns a Ford, but the logo is not prominently shown. Random brand logos are sometimes visible on people’s clothes, etc., but not in a commercial way. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Some wine drinking is visible. 

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Country Ever After is a family-friendly, upbeat reality series featuring YouTube country music sensation Coffey Anderson, and his wife and kids. The primary themes are on family, faith, and their individual careers, but some episodes focus on Criscilla Anderson's battle against cancer (and feature her receiving chemo), which some viewers may find upsetting. There’s some silly innuendo, some wine drinking over meals, and logos for local venues are sometimes prominently visible. The overall series is a promotional vehicle for Coffey’s music and career.

What's the story?

COUNTRY EVER AFTER is a Netflix reality series starring country artist Coffey Anderson and his wife, hip-hop dancer Criscilla, as they juggle their performance careers with their family life. The multiracial Christian couple and their family live in Los Angeles to accommodate their careers. But Coffey never lets go of his Texan roots, and Criscilla, who is originally from Las Vegas, fully embraces her urban background. They may have their differences, but the biggest challenge they face is Criscilla’s battle against stage III colon cancer. Together, they rely on their family bond and their faith to get them through the tough times and to live life to the fullest. 

Is it any good?

This feel-good series features country singer Coffey Anderson -- who single-handedly used YouTube to build a career -- and his wife raising their family while dealing with some tough challenges. But the overall series is designed to be positive, and despite their difficulties, is nearly always upbeat. 

The couple doesn’t proselytize, but they openly talk about their Christian faith and how it guides them. They are also shown participating in testimony, and other church-related events. Meanwhile, Coffey also talks a lot about the special relationship he has with his fans, and discusses how he reaches out to them. Some viewers may not find this particularly original or entertaining, but if you enjoy uplifting reality shows, Country Ever After will do the trick.
