Created by and starring Bashir Salahuddin (Top Gun: MaverickSouth Side) and Diallo Riddle (MarlonSouth Side), and executive produced by Get Lifted Film Co. (Atlanta’s Missing and MurderedRhythm + Flow), and RadicalMedia (What HappenedMiss Simone?Grant), the witty, irreverent and wholly original Sherman’s Showcase features sketches, cultural nostalgia, A-list guest stars, and original award-winning songs that, all together, earned the series a 100% Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

“Sherman McDaniels has been a staple in American culture for almost 50 years and shows no signs of slowing down…or aging at all,” said creators and stars Salahuddin and Riddle.

“We’re thrilled to return to the uniquely nerdy, quirky, silkily soulful and musical world of Sherman’s Showcase. It’s all our favorite things and now it’s on AMC and IFC. Season 2’s so big, it needs two networks.”

Sherman’s Showcase will roll out its “Black History Month Spectacular” on Friday by honoring historic African-American icons both past and present, alongside superheroes, period dramas, vampires, and a very special re-imagining of the cult film The Last Dragon.

Guest stars in the “Black History Month Spectacular” include (in alphabetical order) rapper Phonte Coleman, Michael Ealy (StumptownWestworld), journalist Jemele Hill, Lil Rel Howery (Get OutRel), actor and TV host Terrence J, series executive producer and Emmy-, GRAMMY-, Oscar– and Tony-winner John Legend, rapper and activist Vic Mensa, Vanderpump Rules’ Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz, GRAMMY winner Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, GRAMMY winner Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter, Tyrin Turner (Menace II Society), Mario Van Peebles (Heartbreak Ridge), Bresha Webb (MarlonThe Last O.G.) and more.
