Executive produced by Cedric the Entertainer, JOHNSON is a half-hour scripted series that centers on four life-long best friends in Atlanta -- all of whom share the same last name (Johnson). Omar, Greg, Keith and Jarvis Johnson (no relation) met in grade school and have been best friends ever since. After 25 years of friendship, they find themselves in vastly different places in their lives, threatening the unity that has always been so strong. They confront and find humor in the most current controversial social issues from the Black Man's perspective, ranging from love, marriage, business, politics and religion. JOHNSON debuted on Sunday, August 1, 2021 from 8-9pm ET, as Bounce TV premiered back-to-back episodes. In the series opener,"Brotherly Love" (8pm), Omar, Greg, Keith and Jarvis Johnson have a guys night out that doesn't go exactly as planned. They run into popular radio host Eugene Johnson in a bar who gives them relationship advice.
