"Keeping it real," as the premiere episode of ABC's new sitcom black-ish, suggests, isn't always easy.
The show stars Anthony Anderson as Dre Johnson, a husband, father of four and successful ad executive trying desperately to help his upper-middle-class family maintain its black culture – despite their overwhelmingly white surroundings.
It's a possibly limiting premise, but thanks to humorous truths embedded in the concept – it's largely based on Anderson's own experience as an African-American father raising kids in a predominantly white environment – this show just might work.

Laurence Fishburne's daughter is speaking out about her controversial decision to enter the entertainment industry by becoming a porn star.
"Being in an adult film is not a big deal to me," Montana Fishburne, 18, tells PEOPLE. "It's something I always wanted to do. I have always been comfortable in my body and with my sexuality."
And no, she's not hoping her adult film, which will be released by Vivid Entertainment on Aug. 10, will spawn a mainstream acting career. "I am not in porn to get into acting. I am in porn because I wanted to be in porn," she says bluntly.
The daughter of the CSI star, an Academy Award nominated actor, said she didn't seek her parents' approval before signing on for the film.
