Television Network ABC gets "Black-ish!"

Updated on September 21, 2014

Feeling "Black-ish!"

I am beyond ecstatic to write this “pre-view” (I think I just made up a new word) of ABC’s new series Black-ish, which is executively produced by Anthony Anderson and Laurence Fishburne. Anderson is known for his comedy in films like Me, Myself and Irene and television appearances on The Real Husbands of Hollywood. Fishburne has had a lucrative career staring in hit films like The Matrix Trilogy and the popular television series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. These two men have come together to shine light, in a comedic fashion, on the assimilation of an Afro-American family in the suburbs.


ABC's "Blackish" History

As an Afro-American person and TV fanatic, it feels great to see an all black cast back on network television! ABC, being the fifth oldest major network, has a history of creating memorable Afro-American sitcoms starting back in the early 70s with The Jackson 5ive (1971-1972) and What’s Happening (1976-1979). Other ABC shows featuring a predominately Afro-American cast is Family Matters (1989-1997), Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper (1992-1997), Sister, Sister (1994-1995) and My Wife and Kids (2001-2005). Scandal, which is currently the highest rated scripted drama series among Afro-American homes, is bringing in 10.5 million views weekly with it’s lead actress, Kerry Washington, being the first Afro-American female lead in a network drama in almost 4 decades.


Anderson and Fishburne aren’t only putting in work on the executive side but are also staring in the series as father and son. Along side Anderson, as his beautiful and mult-racial wife, is Tracee Ellis Ross. Ellis is most known for her roll in the hit UPN show Girlfriends (2000-2008) and the daughter of Motown royalty Diana Ross. Now, I know the title may be a bit...crappy, but let's see if there's some hidden treasure in this writing before we throw it in the toilet (pun intended). Make sure you tune into Blackish; premieres September 24 at 9:30/8:30c
