A&E NETWORK TO PREMIERE NEW ORIGINAL COMEDY SERIES "BLACK AND WHITE" ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 13 AT 10:30PM ET/PT

A PROVOCATIVE WEEKLY SERIES THAT FILTERS CURRENT EVENTS THROUGH THE DUELING POINTS OF VIEW OF COMEDIANS CHRISTIAN FINNEGAN AND SHERROD SMALL

NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 13, 2016 - A&E Network's new original comedy series, "Black And White" is a provocative weekly in-studio show that tackles the third rail of both comedy and politics: race. Hosted by Christian Finnegan and Sherrod Small, this new series covers the biggest headlines sweeping the nation through the fresh and hilarious points of views of these comedians and longtime friends. "Black And White" premieres Wednesday, July 13 at 10:30PM ET/PT on A&E.

"A&E is proud to bring our viewers bold, new programming with a unique point of view - or in the case of 'Black And White,' two points of view," said Elaine Frontain Bryant, EVP and Head of Programming for A&E Network. "Sherrod and Christian are the perfect comedic duo to deliver real conversations about hot button topics that will entertain as well as incite viewers to join the conversation."

Taped in front of a studio audience, "Black And White" is a smart, funny and honest conversation about race in America. The show tackles current and relevant stories in the news through the prism of race and uses comedy to diffuse the tension. Utilizing sketch, parody and social experiments, this series shines a light on the state of race in our country. Joined by celebrity guests and commentators, our hosts take on the issues of race in this eight episode studio based comedy show. Hosts, Christian Finnegan and Sherrod Small have been fixtures on the stand-up comedy scene for over a decade and are best known for their off-the-cuff commentary which has been featured on numerous series and talk shows over the years.

"Black and White" is produced for A&E Network by Jimco Productions. Sherrod Small, Christian Finnegan and Kara Welker are executive producers. Executive producers for Jimco Productions are Jim Biederman and Marla Ratner. Elaine Frontain Bryant, Shelly Tatro and Sean Gottlieb will serve as executive producers for A&E.
