The Family Business,” based on Carl Weber’s bestselling crime drama book series, follows the Duncans, an upstanding, tight-knit family led by L.C. Duncan (Ernie Hudson) that by day owns and operates an exotic car dealership in New York. By night, their business activities are more illicit in nature.

In the spinoff, the New Orleans side of the Duncan family gets caught in a vicious turf war with corrupt politicians, dirty land developers, and ruthless crime bosses all vying for the family’s underground casino and nightclub business. 

They call on their relatives from New York to help wield their own brand of justice.

Big Shirley Duncan, owner of popular New Orleans club Midnight Blues, and her son Marquis (Brandon T. Jackson), get dragged into a brutal power struggle between the most dangerous people in the city on both sides of the law, all wanting a piece of their business and land for secret malicious reasons.

Fearing that her family may lose control of The Blues, Big Shirley sends Marquis to New York to see her brother-in-law, crime boss LC Duncan, who in turn enlists his nephew, Bounty Hunter Curts Duncan, and his highly trained niece, Lauryn Duncan, to help add some muscle and security to their family’s business.

In addition to “The Family Business” New Orleans spinoff, Brandon T. Jackson will also star in the upcoming indie film, I’m Beginning To See The Light, alongside Abbie Cornish, Jack Huston, and Jamie Chung.

Congratulations to Brandon on Big Tings in 2024!
