The entire Ingram family is fun to watch and relatable. I love seeing each of their own personalities shine through. But what I liked the most is seeing how this All American family keeps it real and how they handle and deal with real life situations...I am crowning them the First Family of reality entertainment. Bravo Ingram Family!
I love this show!! I’m a TV producer in Los Angeles and let me just tell you, we need a show like this gracing the screen. It’s cute, funny, uplifting, raw, brilliant tv! In a world where black families need better role models like we had with the Cosby’s - this show is the next gen of that. Kudos!

ABOUT THE SHOW
THE EXPATS: INTERNATIONAL INGRAMS chronicles the international adventures and struggles of a black American family living, working, and learning abroad. The faith-based 20 episodic series covers everything from navigating new cultures, schooling, health scares, Black Lives Matter abroad, and even COVID-19 as experienced in Asia (Taiwan).
"Being African-American and choosing to live abroad is always steeped in change and navigating through the unexpected, but today the racial and viral pandemics have placed the topic of living as an expat front and center. This series tackles tough and relatable issues in an educational yet entertaining way all while breaking stereotypes and increasing a more inclusive representation of expats of color," says the show's Executive Producer and Creator, Juanita Ingram, Esq.
“As a trailing spouse, reinvention and flexibility are a must,” noted Ingram. “Trailing spouse syndrome/depression is real and navigating through it is a journey! Being black and abroad has its ups and downs but in the end, it is worth it.”
“It is vital that we control our own narrative when depicting our journey. I wanted to ensure that we gave a genuine and authentic depiction of the experiences shared in this series,” said Ingram. “Ownership and controlling the narrative of black lives as depicted in media matters."
Utilizing an "edutainment" approach, the docuseries ushers in a new genre of "smart-reality TV", offering a positive, family-friendly, and immensely entertaining depiction of black expats, directly combating the distorted representation of the lives and reality of black people and black families. The series challenges dangerous stereotypes by setting forth a positive, informative, and entertaining depiction of the black family and those who are electing to live abroad and will open up a world of opportunities for viewers seeking to explore options of living aboard in this new post-covid19 norm.
