During Disney’s FYC Fest, the Black-ish cast reunited for a special red carpet event and panel. Series stars Tracee Ellis Ross, Anthony Anderson, Miles Brown, and Marcus Scribner were joined by executive producer Courtney Lilly and moderator Vivica A. Fox on Monday (June 6). Emmy voters were invited to the event at the El Capitan Theater to hear from the cast and crew who reflected on the series’ eighth and final season.
Black-ish debuted in September 2014 and aired the final episode on April 22. During its time on ABC, the series was nominated for several awards and produced two spinoffs, Grown-ish, and Mixed-ish. Kenya Barris-created series was executive produced by Barris, Lilly, Laura Gutin Peterson, Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Sugland, E. Brian Dobbins and Michael Petok. The series is produced by ABC Signature, a part of Disney Television Studios.
To present a successful, loving family with everyday issues specific to its Black experiences but with universal significance was always Barris’ goal. “‘Black-ish’ was grounded in a family that loved each other,” explained Lilly in a May interview with Variety.
