Andre ‘Dre’ Johnson has a great job, a beautiful wife, four kids and a colonial home in the ‘burbs. But has success brought too much assimilation for this black family? That’s the question posed by hit comedy Black-ish, which takes a fun yet bold look at one man’s determination to establish a sense of cultural identity for himself and his family.
Black-ish brings together a talented ensemble including star Anthony Anderson (All About the Andersons, Law & Order), film and television veteran Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), actress Tracee Ellis Ross (Girlfriends) and newcomer Marcus Scribner. Since debuting in 2014, the show’s commitment to social and political commentary have helped it gain critical recognition with multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominations, as well as winning a prestigious Peabody Award in 2016.
