Tracee Ellis Ross has signed a multi-year deal with ABC signature. Joy Mill Entertainment, which is Ross’ production company, will produce content across all platforms and be housed in the studio.
Ross has recently held lead roles in ABC original Black-ish and Mixed-ish. “I love sharing stories and using storytelling to connect and celebrate humanity,” said Ross. She states that she is excited to build more stories and create more content.
“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. However, I am thrilled to finally be sharing the news and expanding this part of my artistry at my home studio, ABC Signature. Jonnie Davis, Tracy Underwood, and their team have been incredible collaborators, and I am eager to continue our shared journey.”
President of ABC Signature, Jonnie Davis added, “Tracee is a beloved member of the ABC Signature family and, as everyone knows, has brought so much to our -ishuniverse. We also love and admire Tracee’s passion for storytelling and developing projects, so we’re thrilled that Joy Mill Entertainment will be housed at our studio. We’re already incredibly excited by the projects she’s bringing to us in this new role.”
Although, Ross is a four-time Emmy nominee for her role on Black-ish, she’s also the producer.
