According to Deadline, the show will be based on family experiences, the plot follows a thick as thieves immigrant Haitian family, who takes a “fake it, till you make it” approach to life to survive today’s American legal system.

Gauyo said, “the show is about an immigrant Haitian family in Boston trying to stick together when a huge Family secret is uncovered, it’s like an immigrant version os Shameless.”
