The series introduces the rest of his loveable family like his mother Doris, 70-year old Uncle Curtis (who is an amateur porn star, looking to turn pro), Eddie Junior, an aspiring singer whose studio costs are staggering, and JC, the gargantuan Ex NFL pro - turned boxer, who Eddie hopes to take to the top. Of course, all of them are bleeding Eddie dry as he works himself to death, trying to help them realize their own dreams.
