Floyd Mooney is a young African-American comedian whose star is on the rise. But the path to stardom is a minefield that Floyd must navigate to maintain his credibility while attempting to become “white famous.”
A coked-out Teddy seeks Floyd's help in winning back the rights to 'Angry Black;' Malcolm sets up shop at Floyd and Balls' place while looking for new employment. Meanwhile, Amy's talent for negotiation gets tested when a confrontation with Peter turns violent and an unexpected opportunity presents itself to Floyd.
When their children's misbehavior sends Floyd, Sadie, Peter and Amy to the principal's office, it's Floyd, not Trevor, who lands in hot water. While Sadie worries about the punishing consequence this could have on Trevor's enrollment, Malcolm and Teddy unwittingly suffer the professional repercussions of Floyd's misdeeds.
Floyd and Balls are called upon to settle a creative dispute over Teddy's use of the N-word; Stu shares troubling news from the set of 'Molested!'; and Floyd receives an unwelcome invitation to a dinner party hosted by Peter and Amy, where secrets from the couple's philandering past threaten to resurface.
Floyd's commitment to 'Angry Black' wavers after learning Sadie's new boyfriend has been cast as his co-star. Malcolm goes head-to-head with a sexy rival from his past as she attempts to poach his clients. And a chance fling with the network president's wife looms large over Floyd's fledging career - while Balls has a brush-in with love of his own.
Fresh off the set of 'Molested!,' Malcolm pushes a reluctant Floyd to commit to his next project - a race-based prestige series, helmed by an eccentric director. Trevor takes a tour of an expensive private school, forcing Floyd to reconsider his sabbatical from acting; and Sadie comes clean about a relationship that started while Floyd was away.
Hot young stand-up comic Floyd Mooney is poised to jump to the next level of fame, if only he would stop sabotaging himself. But when a racially charged encounter between Floyd and a powerful film producer goes viral, Floyd finds an exciting new opportunity presenting itself - if he's willing to bend his principles to further his career.
