About The Family Business

Welcome to the world of the Duncan family. They appear to be upstanding citizens running one of New York's most respected car dealerships, but in reality, they're leaders of the black mafia who control most of the East Coast underworld. No matter which job is at hand, one thing is true about the Duncans: there is nothing they won't do for family. The Family Business is an American crime family drama created by Carl Weber and based on his bestselling crime drama book series. Originally developed as an independent film franchise, BET produced it as an eight-episode limited series in 2018. Midway through its second season, BET+ has picked up a third season of Carl Weber’s The Family Business, based on Weber’s bestselling crime drama book series. Production is scheduled to begin next month in Los Angeles. You can watch a trailer below.

Nunez, Arrington Foster, KJ Smith, Dylan Weber, Yadi Valerio and Emilio Rivera.
