Plot Synopsis

Based on Carl Weber's book of the same name, THE FAMILY BUSINESS is a one-hour drama series that centers on the Duncans, a prominent family from Jamaica, Queens living fast and luxurious. By day, they're an upstanding family; by night, they live a dangerous secret life. The patriarch of the family, L.C. Duncan, is at the age when he's starting to think about retirement and has to decide which of his children should take over his thriving exotic car dealership. The Duncans quickly come under siege from some of the top politicians, mafia and drug cartels in the city. The Duncans have to stick together -- or die separately. In the series opener, "We Are At War," L.C. has decided it's finally time to pass on the mantle of leadership. All this during a time when their Asian supplier has cut them off, and their rivals are threatening to put them out of business.
Tonight (Tuesday, January 15, 2019) at 9pm ET/PT, BET premieres "A Death In The Family," a new episode of THE FAMILY BUSINESS. The Duncans send Junior and Paris to search for a killer. HEAT is a big hit, and everyone is excited about the possibilities -- except Chippy. A Duncan dies at the hands of the Zunigas.
