TV show description:
A prequel to the Black-ish TV series, the Mixed-ish sitcom is loosely based on the life of co-creator Kenya Barris’ wife.
As an adult, Rainbow “Bow” Johnson (Ross) recounts her experience of growing up in a mixed-race family in the 1980s, and the dilemmas they faced to acclimate in the suburbs while staying true to themselves.
Bow’s parents, Paul (Gosselaar) and Alicia (Sumpter), have decided to move from a hippie commune to the suburbs so that they can better provide for their family. As her parents struggle with the challenges of their new lives in a more typical community, young Bow (Himmel) and her siblings, Santamonica (Harris) and Johan (Childress), navigate a mainstream school in which they’re perceived as neither black nor white.
This family’s experiences illuminate the challenges of finding one’s own identity when the rest of the world can’t decide where you belong.
