As they fall in love, their relationship is tested by their respective families: Ezra’s progressive and semi-woke parents (Julia Louis-Dreyfus and David Duchovny) and Amira’s unyielding yet concerned parents (Eddie Murphy and Nia Long) who inject themselves into their lives mercilessly.

London, who was born and raised in LA, told Netflix that getting to highlight her favorite childhood hotspots was part of the magic of filming You People. “My favorite location was Simply Wholesome,” she says.
“Growing up in LA, I used to walk to Simply Wholesome and grab a patty or a smoothie. Being inside a Black establishment that promotes wellness and health in the heart of our community, and that business being highlighted and shown in a big-budget film, that was very special.”
The actress also talked about the comedy ensemble: “These collaborators are masters at their craft. You have Eddie Murphy and Julia and Nia Long and David Duchovny and Jonah Hill – and Kenya as the captain of the ship. Everyone brought in their specialness and their art.”
As for her own character, London says she immediately related to Amira: “[She’s a] laid-back LA girl. Very chill, goes with the flow, very stylish, very easygoing. Someone I would want to be friends with.”
