ANTHONY ANDERSON SAYS HE LEFT ‘LAW & ORDER’ TO CREATE MORE SHOWS LIKE ‘BLACK-ISH’

Black-ish actor Anthony Anderson has revealed why he left the reboot of the popular NBC television drama Law & Order.

Frazier caught up with Anderson in South Lake Tahoe, California while the actor was in town for the American Century Championship.

Anderson reprised the role in 2021 for the reboot of the hit show created by Dick Wolf in 1990.

Anderson explained that he had only signed a one-year contract.

He accepted the role because he knew that he had other projects in mind that he wanted to create and have ownership in.

Anderson starred on Black-ish for eight seasons and has been nominated for an Emmy Award as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series seven times.
