‘Black-Ish’ continues to be the gift that keeps giving. Because the show has birthed yet another spin-off named ‘Mixed-Ish.’
Following the success of ‘Grown-Ish’ on sister station Freeform, ABC have made a straight to series order of the new show.
A prequel of sorts, it’ll be set in the 80s and chronicle the early life of Tracee Ellis Ross‘ character Rainbow Johnson. It’ll have a focus on her experiences being mixed race.
‘Mixed-Ish,’ which is co-written by ‘Black-Ish’ creator Kenya Barris and exec produced by Ross + Anthony Anderson, will premiere as a backdoor-pilot during a future episode of ‘Black-Ish.’

The state of Britney Spears‘ personal life continues to have professional ramifications.
As widely reported, the singer is at the center of a scandal surrounding her conservatorship; a measure put in place after her 2007 breakdown.
After news surfaced of the singer’s admission into mental health facility in Janaury, a sect of fans hit the press claiming controlling impropriety by the star’s handlers – all of which has been adamantly denied.
Complicating the matter the more was Spears’ recent court date, which she attended with her mother Lynn. During the closed hearing, she reportedly confirmed that she has several issues with her current predicament – including, but not limited to, medication and visitation rights to see her children (who primarily reside with their father Kevin Federline).
Now, her longtime manager Larry Rudolph has weighed in with an update.

It’s been three years since Murder Inc. CEO Irv Gotti first mentioned his desire to create a documentary to showcase the rise and fall of his hitmaking label, but now it appears the ball is finally going to get rolling on the project.
Taking to Instagram recently, the 48-year-old lifted the lid on news the flick will be helmed by Michael Payton – the producer responsible for the unauthorized documentary that detailed label’s (seemingly) overnight launch and almost just as quick descent. But, if that’s not enough news to get his followers excited, Gotti also unveiled news an accompanying TV series and 20th anniversary tour (both courtesy of Live Nation) are also in the works.
Those who thought Lady Gaga‘s history-making ‘Star Is Born‘ winning streak had ended (click here to read more) will be excited to learn there are still a few opportunities for the diva to nab more trophies for her mantle before the year’s end, namely MTV Movie & TV Awards.
Announced Tuesday (May 14), ‘Star Is Born’ and ‘Avengers: Endgame’ were among multiple titles with at least four nominations each.
With other notable titles including Lifetime’s ‘Surviving R. Kelly,’ the Jordan Peele-directed ‘Us,’ and many more, look inside to see if your favorite films or TV shows from the last year earned a mention on this year’s nominee’s list.
All roads lead to June 21 for R&B’s leading bad boy Chris Brown.
The Grammy-winner, who recently celebrated his 30th birthday (May 5), was the one delivering gifts when he confirmed news the new project, titled ‘Indigo,’ would not only hit stores next month but would also include a whopping 30 tracks. Colored by guest appearances from the likes of Drake, Justin Bieber, Tyga, Tank, H.E.R., Juvenile, and many more, one of the set’s most highly anticipated features came courtesy of the Nicki Minaj & G-Eazy-assisted ‘Wobble Up.’
Selected as ‘Indigo’s third single, the J.R. Rotem-produced tune has been greeted with critical acclaim but, as of time reported, that hasn’t exactly helped it wobble up the charts. In an effort to change the tide, Brown took to his official Instagram to show off the album’s cover artwork and tease ‘Wobble’s music video. See it inside:
The harsh reality of police brutality is addressed artistically in ‘Beats’, a Netflix original movie starring Uzo Aduba and Anthony Anderson.
In it, viewers are pulled into a world (tragically based on our own) which sees African-American people forced to fight for justice and their lives in the face of adversity caused by racists and those who empower them.

After weeks of subtleties, Wendy Williams finally opened up about her split from embattled husband Kevin Hunter on today’s episode of her hit show.
