Tracee Ellis Ross, Anthony Anderson, and Laurence Fishburne - "Black-Ish" Headed to ABC....

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tracee Ellis Ross, Anthony Anderson and Laurence Fishburne are headed to ABC for a new black comedy "Black-ish" for the 2014-15 roster.
The series will explore  what it means to be “Black” in today’s society, as it follows an  “upper-middle-class Black man (Anthony Anderson), who struggles to raise his children with a sense of cultural identity despite constant contradictions from his liberal wife, old-school father and his own color-blind kids.” 
Kenya Barris, writer for "The Game," on BET wrote the script based on his real life experience, so it should be pretty good.
“I decided to do this project when I looked up and realized that everywhere I go I’m constantly the fly in buttermilk,” he told Deadline. “I’m usually THE black guy at work. We’re THE black family in the neighborhood. My kids are basically THE black kids at school. I think it’s kind of a situation of be careful what you wish for. It’s almost in like moving on up, I’ve sort of priced myself ‘out’ of being black.”
Ross, who plays alongside Anderson as the liberal wife, gushed about the good news to her nearly 300,000 Instagram followers on Instagram. 
“Yup we’re #Blackish …this is a dream and yet it’s reality! @kenyab_in_imax3d #KenyaBarris #LaurenceFishburne @AnthonyAnderson #LarryWilmore and MEEEEE …thank you ABC,” she wrote.
Congrats to you guys!  What a phenomenal cast!
