We had the opportunity to speak with Family Time creator Bentley Kyle Evans and stars of the show Angell Conwell and Omar Gooding. We asked them what makes this fourth season so special for them.
Bentley Kyle Evans – “I am extremely excited about season 4 of family time for a number of reasons. This is the first season we were allowed to do 13 episodes. So we extended from doing a 10 episode season to 13. Our first season was 6 episodes. It’s more robust and more Family Time for an audience to grasp on to the story line and become familiar with the Stallworth family. Bounce allowed us to do holiday episodes and show more how the Stallworths’ are like other families out there who deal with issues. This season we dig deeper into the relationships.”
Omar Gooding -” This was the hardest season for us to film as actors, it was hard to keep a straight face. Everyone was hilarious. We have a ball. The other fun thing, Angell and myself are producers. We get to try our hand in writing. My script will air next season but Angell’s will play this season for the Kwanzaa episode. I am very excited and really looking forward to getting feedback from the audience. ”
Angell Conwell – “I am so grateful to Bentley and Bounce. I spoke with several people and it takes a while to even get to that point where you are writing for a show you’re on. It was special because I got to the point where the producers trust me to give me this opportunity. I love to work with people who want to see you win in every avenue. That trust made it special. We are working to one cause and at the same time making a living and having fun. Bounce TV is growing and so is the interaction with us and the audience.”
