A realistic sitcom, centering around an upper-middle-class black family in LA.
Dre Johnson has it all: a great job, a beautiful wife, Rainbow, four kids and a big home in a classy neighborhood, but as a black man, he begins to question whether all his success has brought too much cultural assimilation for his family. With the help of his father, Dre begins to try to create a sense of ethnic identity for the members of his family that will allow them to honor their background while preparing them to embrace the future.
There’s a spinoff of the eldest daughter in college, called Grown-ish and another about Rainbow’s life growing up called Mixed-ish.
