ABC Renews Modern Family and black-ish, Orders The Mayor and The Gospel of Kevin to Series

(via Deadline)

ABC is sticking with its bread and butter by giving Modern Family a 9th and 10th season and black-ish a 4th season

With that main part of the comedy brand covered, ABC will now be taking on some more high-concept comedies with The Mayor and The Gospel of Kevin that both pit unlikely, selfish lead characters into having save the people around them. To peak your interest, The Gospel of Kevin has Jason Ritter starring and The Mayor has Daveed Diggs, who you probably know from Hamilton, on board as an executive producer.

Interestingly enough, this does seem like ABC likes to have a white and black version of certain TV comedy formulas.
