'BlackAF' Trailer: Rashida Jones & Kenya Barris Team Up for Netflix Comedy Series - Watch!

Kenya Barris and Rashida Jones join forces in the trailer for their upcoming Netflix series #blackAF!

The 45-year-old Black-ish and Grown-ish writer and the 44-year-old Parks and Recreation actress star in and executive produce the new parenting comedy.

Here’s the synopsis: “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.”

It continues, “Pulling back the curtain, #blackAF 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.”

#blackAF stars Kenya Barris making his acting debut as “a fictionalized version of himself” and Rashida Jones (Angie Tribeca) as his wife Joya. Kenya and Joya’s children are played by Genneya Walton, Iman Benson, Scarlet Spencer, Justin Claiborne, Ravi Cabot-Conyers, and Richard Gardenhire Jr.

Don’t miss #blackAF when it hits the streaming service on April 17, and watch the trailer now!

See what else is coming to Netflix in April, and what’s leaving.
