The black-ish family is expanding.

Jones’ episode — which is slated to air in late April — revolves around the incorrect belief that the two siblings have a lot in common.

    Thank Heaven! Drama High was not a great name! And as much as the premise doesn’t seem very up my alley, I really like the cast they have assembled thus far, and so I want it to have every chance at succeeding. (R.I.P. Selfie and Trophy Wife)

      Agree about Drama High being a pretty weak title, and likely one people would have avoided. I’m undecided if Rise is any better though. I’ll definitely still check it out though.

    • dude says:

      Rise isn’t much better though. It sounds like the title of a feel-good Disney movie about a teenage competitive gymnast battling cerebral palsy.

    At least Drama High was memorable. Rise is completely generic.

    Was having enough trouble remembering Drama High let alone Rise
