Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, are executive producers of this new sitcom, and Will is scheduled for a guest appearance Nov. 18. But All of Us doesn't have a whole lot else to recommend it.

Robert (Duane Martin) is a TV entertainment reporter whose ex-wife Neesee (LisaRaye McCoy) keeps barging into his house when he's trying to get cozy with new fiancee Tia (Elise Neal). Dirk (Tony Rock, brother of Chris), Robert's divorced pal and producer, describes women as "territorial and demented"—grossly unfair in general but sadly accurate in the case of catty Neesee and in-secure Tia. Someday the series may have interesting things to say about how divorced parents go about raising a young son (Khamani Griffin), but for now the grown-ups' immaturity fails to amuse.
