On the onscreen chemistryTracee Ellis Ross: I didn’t have a picture in my head of who should be my (onscreen husband) and first moment with him was so palpable… doing scenes with Malcolm does not feel like acting. It’s like it just happens, and I think that’s the magic that people long for.
Malcom Jamal Warner: We have a great rapport and it’s probably one of the best non-physical affairs I’ve ever had.
On their show being compared to ‘The Cosby Show’Tracee Ellis Ross: In our world, it’s always easier for people to put a handle on something so they can grasp what it is like, If we could in any way, shape or form hold a candle to what Cosby did, represented and was, then we have succeeded.
Thoughts on the showMalcom Jamal Warner: I think people will definitely tune in because of [the value Tracee and I bring to the network], and they’ll walk away feeling that the show is refreshing. This is a show that we can all be proud of. None of us is Bill Cosby. We’re not trying to recreate Cosby. What we are trying to recreate is the universality and the timelessness.
This show is amazing! I loved every episode that I've seen so far. I'm actually about to watch the latest one right about now :-). Did I mention that I love Tracee Ellis Ross and that the pictures about are fab!
