ABC's "black-ish" got our attention with its hilariously frank take on race, but it kept and grew its audience by reflecting the comedically insightful antics of a two-profession couple. And no working mom is hipper, smarter and crazier than Tracee Ross Ellis' Dr. Rainbow Johnson, one of TV's truly modern characters.
Ellis will be stopping by the Los Angeles Times’ studio at 2 p.m. PDT on Monday to discuss the joys and pressures of being on the vanguard of an industry shift and starring in one of the most scrutinized and talked-about shows on television. When the president calls you out at the White House Correspondents' Assn. dinner, you know you're doing something right.
We'll ask her about all the family’s issues: Are they black enough? Have they lost touch with their lower-economic roots? Is it OK for their son to identify as Republican? We’ll take your questions too. Tweet them to us using the hashtag #AskLATimes. See you this afternoon, and in the meantime, check out our other Emmy Contender conversations.
