Kenya Barris and Rashida Jones put a unique and stylish spin on parenting in the newly released trailer for the forthcoming Netflix comedy #blackAF. Barris and Jones star and executive produce the series, which is slated to drop on April 17.
Additional cast includes Iman Benson, Genneya Walton, Scarlet Spencer, Justin Claiborne, Ravi Cabot-Conyers and Richard Gardenhire Jr.
Loosely inspired by Barris’ irreverent, highly flawed, unbelievably honest approach to parenting, relationships, race, and culture, #blackAF flips the script on what we’ve come to expect a family comedy series to be. Pulling back the curtain, #blackAF uncovers the messy, unfiltered and often hilarious world of what it means to be a “new money” black family trying to get it right in a modern world where “right” is no longer a fixed concept.
Best known as the creator of the ABC hit sitcom, black-ish, Barris makes his acting debut on the show, playing a fictionalized version of himself. His production company, Khalabo Ink Society, will produce via Barris’ overall deal. Hale Rothstein also serves as an executive producer alongside Barris and Jones.
