Laurence Fishburne Set For ABC’s Anthony Anderson Pilot
According to Deadline, Laurence Fishburne has closed a deal as a recurring for ABC’s untitled Anthony Anderson pilot (formerly Black-ish) from ABC Studios, Fishburne’s Cinema Gypsy and Principato Young. Written by Kenya Barris (The Game)
and loosely based on his personal experiences, the single-camera comedy
centers on an upper-middle-class black man (Anderson) who struggles to
raise his children with some sense of cultural identity despite constant
contradictions and obstacles coming from his liberal wife, old-school
father, and his own assimilated, color-blind kids. Fishburne, repped by
Paradigm and Landmark Artists Management, will play the dad.
