Cole stars as Joe Washington, a blue-collar plumber in Pittsburgh who discovers his father's secret second life after he dies. His father had stolen millions of dollars from dangerous people before he passed away, and now Joe must face the consequences. Joe's quest for money becomes violent, and authenticity is key to his success. Joe and those close to him are ordinary people who must go on a life-or-death journey to discover the millions hidden by the clues left behind.

The dark comedy is written by Cullen, who teams up with McG, Mary Viola, and Corey Marsh to executive produce Wonderland Sound and Vision.

Currently, Cole can be seen in Netflix's The Harder They Fall and Kelley Kali's I'm Fine (Thanks For Asking). Upcoming projects include Blitz Bazuwale's The Color Purple and Kenya Barris' You People. Before this, Cole was best known for his work as Charlie on Black-ish and Grown-ish - for which he won three NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. He also appeared in Angie Tribeca.

Cole has also been nominated for two Emmy awards for his work as a writer on Conan. In addition, he has two special comedy programs: Netflix's Cole Hearted and Comedy Central's Deon Cole's: Cole Blooded Seminar. In 2020, he debuted his stand-up documentary "Work it Out" on Netflix, a Joke's YouTube channel. Cole is a client of WME and Kirsten Ames Management.
