To drum up more interest, “Black-ish,” one of TV’s most successful freshmen comedy series this season, aired an entertaining teaser during the Oscar broadcast. The show is also going to have a special episode in March. Read on for more about the latest from this show.
At the Oscar broadcast on ABC last Sunday, Feb. 23, 2015, a very entertaining teaser for “Black-ish” ran during the commercial break.
The clip featured ten-year-old Miles Brown (as Jack Johnson), the show’s youngest son, dancing to music from different well-loved films. The promo, which ABC conceptualized, is the show’s tribute to iconic movie dances, which included “Grease,” “Footloose, “Pulp Fiction” and “West Side Story.”
Brown, who is a talented professional dancer in real life, showed off his suave moves in the teaser while the rest of his “Black-ish” family cheered and watched. You can check out the video clip below.
Meanwhile, as announced via a press release published on ABC Media Net, “Black-ish” will be airing the blooper special entitled “black-ish: Bloopish” on Wednesday, March 11, 2015 in its usual timeslot at 9:30 p.m. on ABC. The episode will have a behind-the-scenes feature from the set of the series with the show’s four young stars, Yara Shahidi (as Zoey Johnson), Marcus Scribner (as Andre Johnson, Jr.), Miles Brown and Marsai Martin (as Diane Johnson), as the host.
Extra footages that haven’t been aired or released anywhere. Outtakes and other hilarious clips featuring the leads, Anthony Anderson (as Dre Johnson) and Tracee Ellis Ross (as Rainbow Johnson), will also be the highlight. Even Laurence Fishburne (as Pops) will be for the interview within the special.
The comedy series has been enjoying a good run in its freshman year so far. “Black-ish” earned not only high viewership, but also positive critical feedback, particularly from the Rolling Stones magazine, which considers the series as the only network comedy worth watching from this year’s crop. The show, which is created by Kenya Barris, has also earned due awards and recognitions, particularly from the NAACP.
