Kenya Barris Draws on Real Issues for ABC's 'Black-ish'

Hosted by

When Kenya Barris came on The Business in 2009, he had just finished writing for the CW show The Game. At that point, he didn’t know exactly what he was going to do next, but now, several years and many scripts later, he’s got a show of his own -- Black-ish on ABC. He tells how he incorporates stories from his own family’s life into the show, including one recent episode that discussed how to talk to your children about police brutality and the violence they see on TV news.
