I found out when I got the script the night before the table read.
That’s the way it works on “Black-ish.” We do 24 episodes, so it’s a lot on our writers. So by the time you get a script and have time to read it, it is often the night before the table read. I knew they were going to do a story about Bow’s biracialness.
What I was told after the fact was that I confirmed a lot of what they had already been writing.The show is traditional in that the story is told through Dre but it’s untraditional in that whenever we see this woman she is full. A wonderful thing in the context of us exploring a very specific point of view through Dre. There’s a magic that happens between he and I that’s based in such a respect and love for each other that it translates into the characters. I did not know they were breaking my story – I just stopped by to say hi.You can tell that offscreen, she has a very full and very experienced life that she is living. We’re exploring the idea of being a black man in this country as more than he was raised with and giving his children a different life than he was raised with. We had a mini conversation about my experiences being mixed.The experience of being a mixed person is all over the place — one of my best friends is Chinese and Italian; my other best friend is Lebanese and Trinidadian.The mix of heritage, culture or identity is something that our country is built on.
It’s the future of what a show like ours offers because all of the characters are so strong and clear and interesting that it means that stories could be told through any of the characters’ eyes.
