ABC/Craig SjodinTracee Ellis Ross is taking her relationship with ABC to the next level.
According to Deadline, Ross has signed a multi-year overall deal with ABC Signature Studios. Her new deal falls under her production company, Joy Mill Entertainment, which will produce content across all platforms.
“I love sharing stories and using storytelling as a way to connect and celebrate humanity,” said Ross in a statement. “As an actor, I’ve had the joy of inhabiting nuanced and dynamic roles. As an executive producer, I am able to build stories, gather creatives and shape worlds as a way to illuminate different realities.”
“This deal continues my journey as a storyteller and content creator. I am thrilled to finally be sharing the news and expanding this part of my artistry at my home studio, ABC Signature.”
Ross currently stars on ABC’s black-ish and also produces, narrates and co-created its spinoff, mixed-ish. ABC Signature also produces the other black-ish spinoff, grown-ish at Freeform, and is the studio behind the recently announced third spinoff in development, old-ish.
This is the latest venture for Ross, who earlier this year starred in the film The High Note. She is also set to produce and star in a Daria spinoff titled Jodie, which is expected to air on Comedy Central.
