TV News: US Political Family Comedy

TV shows based on politics such as House Of Cards, Scandal and The Good Wife are favorite binge fodder. But as these are all very serious, one that will make us laugh is welcome indeed.

Black-ish creator/executive producer Kenya Barris and co-executive producer Vijal Patel have created a new comedy (title tbc) which ABC America has nabbed after a healthy bidding war.

Desperate Housewive’s Felicity Huffman will play the lead role in this single camera show set around a husband and wife who happen to be two opposing political pundits.

They are opposite in every way. One’s black, one’s white; one’s left, one’s right. Watch Felicity having fun with Ellen in studio playing the ‘5 second rule’.

Which Irish or UK channel will acquire the new series?
