Mariah Carey wants to star on Black-ish spinoff show

KEEN: Mariah Carey

MARIAH CAREY is keen to star in a new spinoff of the hit TV show Black-ish, according to executive producer Karen Gist.

Mixed-ish will follow the character of Rainbow Johnson - one of the lead characters in Black-ish, played by Tracie Ellis Ross - and her life growing up in a mixed-raced family.

During the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Gist discussed the upcoming show where she revealed the singer’s hope to land a part in the series.

“She’s wanting to do an episode, so hopefully that can work,” she shared.

Carey, who is mixed-race herself, has penned and recorded the theme song for the show titled In The Mix.

In a statement announcing her involvement in the series, Carey shared: "As a fan of Kenya Barris' megahit shows, Black-ish and Grown-ish, I was inspired to connect with Kenya to find a way we could work together.

"As a biracial woman in the entertainment industry, there was no way I did not want to be a part of Mixed-ish, especially after seeing the pilot, which I loved... I could not be more honoured and proud to be writing and performing In the Mix for Kenya and the show."

Mixed-ish premieres on ABC September 24.
