Sinbad’s Family Affair (w/t), an original series following the life of the comedian and his family, will premiere on WE tv on April 12.

The six-part, one-hour series from ThinkFactory Media (formerly Boutique TV) documents Sinbad’s career ups and downs, from a successful talk show and sitcom to divorce and cancellations. Fifteen years later, he’s returned to stand-up comedy and remarried his wife.

“Sinbad’s story is one of second chances.  It’s remarkable and heartwarming, but not without its drama, conflict and chaos,” said John Miller, senior vice president, original productions & development, WE tv and Wedding Central, in a statement.  “This is a modern family that’s reunited and they’re dealing with the emotions and issues that come along with that.”

The series is executive produced by Thinkfactory’s Leslie Greif, Adam Freeman and Adam Reed.  Sinbad, Vernetta Jenkins, and Chuck Vinson are co-executive producers.  Executive producers for WE tv are John Miller and Kate Farrell.
