Wayne Brady is about to give fans an up-close look into his unique blended family.

The veteran multi-hyphenate is doing a reality TV show with Freeform and Hulu called “Wayne Brady: The Family Remix.” The show will revolve around his family life and give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at “the man seen onstage” as he and the group navigate their one-of-a-kind family dynamic.

“What happens when such an iconic entertainer peels back the curtain on the realities of an unexpected life? In ‘Wayne Brady: The Family Remix,’ Brady has turned the term ‘modern family’ on its head,” says the show synopsis.

Brady’s co-stars will include his ex-wife Mandie Taketa, their 21-year-old daughter, Malie, and Taketa’s 3-year-old son, Sundance-Isamu, whom she shares with “life partner since 2009,” Jason Fordham. Adding to the interconnectedness of things is the fact that Brady, who is active in Sundance-Isamu’s life despite not being his father, also works alongside both Taketa and Fordham to run the former couple’s production company, A Wayne & Mandie Creative.

“With Brady at a sudden crossroads in his life, “Wayne Brady: The Family Remix” offers an intimate look into his blended family’s personal life, revealing unexpected points of view and values that most people (including his own family) have a hard time understanding,” the synopsis continues.

“People see their social media posts — from vacations to dancing in TikToks — but what’s behind the joyful 15 seconds of fun? Their real life is not always as easy and as simple as it seems.”

Fans can also expect to get a deeper understanding of Brady as he continues to live his most authentic life after coming out as pansexual last year.

“Wayne Brady: The Family Remix” premieres on Freeform on July 24 and streams the next day on Hulu.
