Emily Lampa talks with actors Christina Anthony and Gary Cole from the tv series Mixed-ish about season two of the show. Gary Cole says he remembers before they premiered last season, he went to a premiere screening before it aired in Chicago. Most of the people he talked to told him that’s my story and I haven’t seen my story really portrayed. He says proud of that fact; it’s part of something on tv that we haven’t examined that much. He goes on to say if we’ve done anything, we can do with humor hopefully it will have an impact. Christina Anthony says she loves that it means a lot to people to see this kind of unique view and to tell a story from the perspective we haven’t really told before. She says she really hopes that Mixed-ish can be, at this time, a model , an example for families to just go ahead and have those difficult conversations; to start hard conversations and to know that you are not out there alone struggling with these conversations around race and identity. She says it’s time to learn how to live together well.
You can watch Mixed-ish tonight on 7ABC at 9:30pm
