Cedric the Entertainer, Max Greenfield, Beth Behrs and Tichina Arnold star in a comedy about what happens when Dave Johnson (Greenfield), a friendly guy from the Midwest, moves his family to a Los Angeles neighborhood next door to Calvin Butler (Cedric), who’s concerned the Johnsons will disrupt the culture on the block and doesn’t appreciate Dave’s extreme neighborliness, on the series premiere of The Neighborhood, Monday, Oct. 1, 8-8:30 p.m. on the News 3.

Their opinionated next-door neighbor, Calvin, is wary of the newcomers, while Calvin’s gracious wife, Tina, rolls out the welcome wagon. Their chipper younger son, Marty, thinks the Johnson’s could be good for the community, and their unemployed older son, Malcolm, finds that Dave may finally be someone who understands him.
