Dinner with the Parents Release Date and Trailer Revealed

Today, Amazon Freevee announced the official April 18 premiere date and released the trailer for the new single-camera comedy series Dinner with the Parents. The series is about a weekly family get-together that always devolves into chaos.

Every Friday evening, the closely-knit Langers prove that it takes those we love best to bring out our worst. On tonight’s menu: pranks, schemes, unwelcome neighbors, childhood crushes, at least one felony, many very bad decisions, and a scrumptious, freshly-baked apple crisp.
