Netflix Announces Premiere Date for New Comedy '#BlackAF' Starring Kenya Barris and Rashida Jones

Netflix has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original comedy series #BlackAF created by and starring Kenya Barris (Black-ish).

All 8 episodes of the first season will be available on Friday, April 17.

Loosely inspired by Barris' irreverent, highly flawed, unbelievably honest approach to parenting, relationships, race and culture, #BlackAF flips the script on what we've come to expect a family comedy series to be. Pulling back the curtain, the comedy uncovers the messy, unfiltered and often hilarious world of what it means to be a "new money" black family trying to get it right in a modern world where "right" is no longer a fixed concept.

The comedy stars Kenya Barris, Rashida Jones, Genneya Walton, Iman Benson, Scarlet Spencer, Justin Claiborne, Ravi Cabot-Conyers and Richard Gardenhire Jr.

Barris and Jones executive produce the series with Hale Rothstein.
