About This Series

Bob Hearts Abishola is a love story about Bob, a middle-aged compression sock manufacturer from Detroit who has a heart attack and falls for Abishola, his no-nonsense Nigerian nurse. They are truly from different worlds, nonetheless Bob is enchanted by this hardworking woman who came to America to find a better life for herself and her twelve-year-old son, Dele. Abishola lives in a small apartment with her super-protective relatives, Auntie Olu and Uncle Tunde who couldn't be more different than Bob's mother Dottie, sister Christina or younger brother Douglas. Exploring their differences through this unexpected cross-cultural pairing is not only funny, but surprisingly universal in this comedy about two families and the love story that binds them.
