#Roommates, just a week after he formally announced that his award-winning series ‘Black-ish’ would be ending after its upcoming eighth season, Kenya Barris reportedly already has plans for his next TV hit…and it also involves Eva Longoria. According to new reports, Kenya Barris and Eva Longoria are set to team up for more “ish”—as the two are said to be collaborating on ‘Brown-ish,’ a series centering around a modern Latinx family.
@Deadline reports, Kenya Barris has been one of the dominate Black creators in television throughout the last several years, courtesy of his collection of popular shows, ‘Black-ish,’ ‘Grown-ish,’ ‘Mixed-ish’ and ‘Black AF.’. Now, according to the latest news from President of ABC Entertainment, Craig Erwich, Kenya wants to take his branded form of entertainment even further with the help of Eva Longoria. The two have reportedly been working behind the scenes to develop ‘Brown-ish,’ which is described as a new take on the Latinx family.
When discussing the upcoming fall television season on ABC, Erwich briefly discussed what’s next for Kenya on the network. ‘Brown-ish’ is still a concept that is in development, we haven’t rolled out the firm plans around that yet. When we talk about the world of ‘Black-ish,’ there are so many different iterations that we are open to; it’s really up to Kenya who is the master and the captain of the franchise,” he said.
Kenya Barris has a lot on his plate these days, including a multi-million deal with Netflix to create more original content—and next in line for that deal is the second season of ‘Black AF,’ which was renewed shortly after it premiered last year on the streaming service.
