Touted as the most watched shows on UPN, the channel decision to pick up the two new shows for a full season indicates popularity of the comedies and networks streak to developing and launching new comedy hits.

In its last outing, Eve ranked as UPN's most watched Monday comedy, with around 4.5 million viewers tuning in, for the first time this season.

Starring Duane Martin (Deliver Us from Eva) as Robert James Sr, Elise Neal (UPN's The Hughleys) as Tia Jewel, LisaRaye (The Players Club ) as Neesee James, Khamani Griffin (Daddy Day Care ) as Robert James Jr. and Tony Rock (The Chris Rock Show ) as Dirk Black, All of us is produced by Overbrook Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television Production Inc. The show marks return of the Will Smith (Men in Black II ) and Jada Pinkett Smith (The Matrix Reloaded) after nearly a decade. Along with the couple James Lassiter (Ali ) and Betsy Borns (Friends ) will be the executive producers for the show.
