Felicity Huffman to Headline Political Family Comedy from black-ish Duo

Felicity Huffman isn’t content to have just one ABC show.

The American Crime actress is attached to a star in an untitled political family comedy from Black-ish creator Kenya Barris and co-executive producer Vijal Patel, which has earned a big commitment from the Alphabet network.

Per our sister site Deadline, the potential series explores how today’s “politics of division” plays out between two opposing pundits who also happen to be husband and wife. (Think James Carville and Mary Matalin.) Bitter work rivals on their show Black & Wright — one’s black, one’s white; one’s left, one’s right — the couple (Huffman plays the wife) has to turn conflict into compromise at home when it comes to raising their kids.

Should the project go to series, it is not expected to impact Huffman’s ability to star in a theoretical fourth season of American Crime.
