Since its debut in 2014, the award-winning ABC hit comedy show “black-ish” has entertained and educated millions of viewers. The series brought audiences inside the difficult conversations and lived experiences many Black families have in America through the comedic lens of the Johnson family.
Disney has announced a new ABC News special is coming to ABC and Hulu, that profiles the making of the groundbreaking show and explores the profound impact it had on society as it concludes its eighth and final season.
The special features interviews with the show’s all-star cast, including Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Marsai Martin, Yara Shahidi, Miles Brown, Marcus Scribner, Laurence Fishburne, Jenifer Lewis and Deon Cole — as well as an exclusive look at the final table read and the cast’s original audition tapes. “black-ish: A Celebration” reflects on some of the show’s most important episodes, covering topics ranging from Juneteenth to postpartum depression.
