The hour-long episodes are primarily told through the eyes of Kierra and J. Drew. The series follows them as they navigate family, friends, and faith in a secular world. The first season has followed Kierra as she has sought to find a balance between her professional ambition to find more mainstream success, and her loyalty to her brother, who she’s collaborated with on all her previous albums. Kierra also has struggled with juggling her new found independence with her strong family bonds, losing weight and love. The Sheards airs Sundays at8 p.m., ET on BET.
