Coffee & Kareem – Picture: Netflix

New Netflix Original comedy Coffee & Kareem lands early April 2020. Here’s everything you need to know about the comic crime flick, coming to your screens soon. 

Police officer James Coffee (Ed Helms) is just a regular cop who divides his time between crime-fighting and his new girlfriend, Vanessa Manning (Taraji P. Henson). However, her twelve-year-old son, played by new-comer Terrence Little Gardenhigh, has other ideas.

After accidentally spotting the couple enjoying an ‘intimate moment’, Kareem makes it his business to scare off his mom’s new boyfriend.

Unfortunately, Kareem bites off more than he can chew. After unwittingly attracting the attention of an organized crime ring, the family ends up in great danger.
