The Neighborhood stars Cedric the Entertainer in a new comedy about what happens when the friendliest guy in the Midwest moves his family to a neighborhood in Los Angeles where not everyone looks like him or appreciates his extreme neighborliness. Dave Johnson (Max Greenfield) is a good-natured, professional conflict negotiator. When his wife, Gemma (Beth Behrs), gets a job as a school principal in L.A., they move from Michigan with their young son, Grover (Hank Greenspan), unfazed that their new dream home is located in a community quite different from their small town. Their opinionated next-door neighbor, Calvin Butler (Cedric), is wary of the newcomers, certain that the Johnsons will disrupt the culture on the block. However, Calvin's gracious wife, Tina (Tichina Arnold), rolls out the welcome wagon; their chipper younger son, Marty (Marcel Spears), thinks the Johnsons could be good for the community; and their unemployed older son, Malcolm (Sheaun McKinney), finds Dave may finally be 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.
