What's the story?

ZOE EVER AFTER is a romantic comedy starring Brandy Norwood as Zoe Moon, a single mom rebuilding her life after divorcing Gemini Moon (Dorian Missick), one of the greatest boxers of all time. Newly single, she’s trying to launch a cosmetics company with the help of assistants Valenté (Tory Devon Smith) and Pearl (Haneefah Wood) while attempting to separate herself from her ex's brand. Complicating things are her attempts to enter the dating world, which is made more interesting thanks to flirtations with handyman Miguel Maldonado (Ignacio Serricchio). It isn't easy, but she wants to prove to her son (Jaylon Gordon) that she can make it happen.

Is it any good?

This lukewarm comedy series relies on an unoriginal premise and predictable narratives for laughs. From the alpha-male ex-husband to the flamboyant, man-crazed gay assistant, each cast member takes on stereotypical, caricature-like qualities that add little to the show.

While it contains some positive messages about hard work, true friendship, and the ability of women to start over and find themselves, they get lost in the stale storylines. Brandy fans may find it worth tuning in, but if you're looking for something fresh and new, this isn't it.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about comedies. Who determines what is funny and what isn’t? Is it ever appropriate to use stereotypes for a laugh?

  • Families can also talk about success. How does Zoe define it for herself? What do you think success is?
