Stacey Abrams to Star In Animated ‘Black-ish’ Special

Former Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives, Stacey Abrams, is set to star in a special animated election-themed episode of Black-ish next month.

According to the network, the episode will focus on Dre (Anthony Anderson), wanting to learn more about local politics and at one point asking Abrams for her advice.

The new animated episode is one of two episodes that serve as a part of a one hour TV special. According to a description given to CNN, the hour-long special will focus around the family “as they navigate the upcoming presidential election.”


The special is to be directed by Matthew Cherry, creator of the short film Hair Love, and will also guest star Showtime late-night talk show duo Desus and Mero. The special is set to air on October 4th, just a couple weeks before the seventh season of Black-ish airs.
