In addition, ABC will expand the award-winning "black-ish" franchise even further, with the network giving an early series order to "mixed-ish," a spinoff about Rainbow Johnson's experience growing up in a mixed-race family in the '80s. Critically acclaimed "black-ish" has received a Peabody Award and several Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) nominations, including a Golden Globe win for Tracee Ellis Ross in 2017. It swept the 2019 NAACP Image Awards' Outstanding Comedy Series category for the fifth year in a row, among other honors.
