Disney+ has announced the full list of everything coming to the United Kingdom and Ireland in August including premieres of new Disney+ Original Series, additional episodes of fan-favorite series, and new library title additions. One of the new titles coming to Star on Disney+ as a Star Original is “mixed-ish.” Episode 1 of Season 1 will arrive on Wednesday, August 18th, with new episodes dropping every Wednesday.
From the creators of “black-ish,” “mixed-ish” follows the beloved Rainbow Johnson as she recounts her experience growing up in a mixed-race family in the ’80s and the dilemmas they face to acclimate in the suburbs while staying true to themselves. As her parents struggle with the challenges of their new life outside of the hippie commune, Bow and her siblings navigate a world where they are perceived as neither black nor white. This family’s experiences illuminate the challenges of finding one’s own identity when the rest of the world can’t decide where you belong.
“mixed-ish” stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Paul Johnson, Tika Sumpter as Alicia Johnson, Christina Anthony as Denise, Arica Himmel as Bow Johnson, Ethan William Childress as Johan Johnson, Mykal-Michelle Harris as Santamonica Johnson and Gary Cole as Harrison Jackson. Executive producers are Kenya Barris, Peter Saji, Tracee Ellis Ross, Randall Winston, Brian Dobbins, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Sugland and Anthony Anderson.
