Storyline and cast
Black-h is an American single-camera comedy series that follows an upper-middle-class African-American family struggling to gain sense of cultural identity while living in a predominantly white neighborhood. It was created and executive produced by Kenya Barns, with Anthony Anderson, Drian Dobbins, Helen Sugland, Jonathan Groff, Larry Wilmore, Paul Young, Laurence Fishburne, Peter Principato and Tom Russo also executive producing. Khalabo Ink Society, Cinema Gypsy Productions and Principato-Young Entertainment are behind the production. Starring Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross, the series first premiered in September 2014. With generally positive reviews, the series was renewed and season 3 premiered on ABC on September 21, 2016.
Andre Johnson is an advertising executive who tries to pass on some of his African-American cultural background to his children. His wife Rainbow is a mixed-race, hippie-raised surgeon, who really doesn’t have a specific cultural background. Their four children are attractive, popular and entitled, and really don’t want to have anything to do with the family dealings, specifically with the urban background issue that is gnawing their father. Living in a colonial home in an affluent suburb, this family faces the usual parental nightmares that are amplified by Andre’s fear that his children are losing touch with the black culture.
Viewership and renewal potential
The series continually pushes the envelope discussing “dangerous” topics such as the evolution of the N-word, corporal punishment and gender roles. The show resonates with its viewers because of its honesty that is mixed in with well-written comedy. The third season debuted to 6.39 million viewers, which went down to 5.58, and then 5.18 million viewers for the two subsequent episodes. Black-ish received numerous nominations and awards, including a TCA for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy and an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series. The favorable critics reviews and decent ratings are likely to result in ABC commissioning up the series for another season.
