THE CLEVELAND SHOW is a new animated series that follows everyone’s favorite soft-spoken neighbor CLEVELAND BROWN (voiced by Mike Henry) to his hometown in Virginia, as he settles down with his high school sweetheart, her unruly kids and his 14 year-old son, CLEVELAND JR (voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson).
Many years ago, Cleveland was a high school student madly in love with a beautiful girl named DONNA (voiced by Sanaa Lathan). Much to his dismay, his love went unrequited, and Donna wound up marrying another man. Cleveland once told Donna he would always love her, and if this man ever done her wrong, he’d be there when she called. Well, this man done her wrong.
Donna’s husband ran off, leaving Donna with a daughter and a baby. Now she’s come to Cleveland and offered him another chance at love. Unattached after the Loretta-Quagmire debacle and true to his word, Cleveland joyously accepts and he and CLEVELAND JR. move to Virginia to join their new family.
Once in Virginia, Cleveland has a few surprises in store for him, including a rebellious new stepdaughter, ROBERTA (voiced by Nia Long), a 5-year-old stepson, RALLO (voiced by Henry), who loves the ladies, as well as a collection of neighbors that includes a loudmouth redneck, LESTER (voiced by Richardson); a hipster wanna-be, HOLT; and a family of talking bears, including TIM (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and his wife ARIANNA (voiced by Arianna Huffington).
Seth MacFarlane, Rich Appel and Mike Henry serve as executive producers and co-creators.
