Sailbourne Entertainment (a European film production company) selects the Jones family to be the subject of their documentary: Life and Times in the Caribbean. It requires that a camera crew follow the family around for six days after which the family will receive $10,000 US. Irving (the patriarch of the family) signs the contract to do the show against Angela’s (his wife) wishes. Now, Irving, Angela, Tracy (their 17-year-old daughter) and Nathan (their 10-year-old son) have to coexist while the camera crew films their every move.
Keeping Up with the Joneses is a Barbadian sitcom with international flavour. It shows how a regular family deals with its day-to-day issues and aims to provide a highly entertaining package from which morals and values can be extracted from each episode.
