According to the official description from the network, the dramedy seriesfollows four longtime friends as they navigate life and relationships through the strength of their brother-like bondIn a society where companionship between men of color is often misjudged and misrepresented [the show] depicts a healthy image of black brotherhood; embracing vulnerability without playing on stereotypical hypermasculinity.

The network also provided this description as well: “Bruh,” a slang term made popular by Black-Greek culture, refers to a friend so close they are more like a brother. For John, Tom, Mike and Bill, no expression could characterize their camaraderie more accurately. Whether fulfilling career dreams or finding love, these four college buddies now in their thirties find themselves learning to stand on their own two feet, while leaning on each other for support and guidance. Sometimes their love is tough and their honesty brutal, but they manage to see each other through every scenario with levity and laughter.

The show is executive produced, written and directed by Tyler Perry. Michelle Sneed is also an executive producer for Tyler Perry Studios.
