The Black sitcom is on its way to making a comeback thanks to a new show ABC just picked up called “Black-ish.” Starring Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross, the show follows the family of six, plus grandpa Laurence Fishburne as they navigate their Blackness in a predominately white world in LA. Based on Anthony Anderson’s real-life experiences of his son coming home and telling him he didn’t feel Black — and consequently trying out for the field hockey team and asking for a Bar Mitzvah — it wasn’t hard for Anderson to come up with material for the series. And interestingly, he says it wasn’t hard to get ABC to support the new show which is slated to air Wednesdays this fall after “Modern Family.” But will Black audiences be down for it? Check out what Anderson has to say about potential show backlash and why audiences need to tune in in the video above. Will you watch?
