Martin Lawrence joins the cast of AMC’s upcoming new series Demascus as a recurring guest star in three of the first six episodes as Demascus’ irascible Uncle Forty, a man who has seen better days. Despite his failing health, Uncle Forty is eager to be acknowledged as the (currently self-proclaimed) patriarch of the family. UTA, Artists First and Gang, Tyre, Ramer, Brown, and Passman represent Lawrence.
 
From AMC Studios, the series will include six episodes debuting next year on AMC+ and AMC.

  • Okieriete Onaodowan (Jack Ryan, Station 19) stars as Demascus, a 33-year-old Black man who goes on a journey of self-discovery using an innovative new technology that allows him to experience different versions of his own life.
  • Additional series regulars include: 
    • Janet Hubert (Love Life, Pose, The Last OG) as Dr. Bonnetville, a psychotherapist with a quick wit and a smart mouth; she uses her patented blend of apathy and cutting-edge technology to aid her patients on their quests for personal growth.
    • Caleb Eberhardt  (Judas & The Black Messiah, Betty) as Redd, Demascus’ Bohemian artist best friend who is a reformed reprobate stumbling into adulthood, and he’s determined to take Demascus with him.
    • Shakira Ja’nai Paye (All Day and a Night, House Party) as Naomi, an alluring performer who captures Demascus’ heart and imagination during a chance meeting; she’s a haunting missed connection, and he can’t stop wondering: “what if?”

‘Demascus’ is a half-hour series created by an accomplished writer, Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm (Boomerang), and executive produced by Mark Johnson’s Gran Via Productions (Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad). Kirk Moore (American Crime, For Life) and Chisholm serve as co-showrunners. Myki Bajaj of Gran Via is also a producer. Solvan “Slick” Naim (61st Street, Power) directs the first two episodes.
