| Filed under: TV NewsBarack ObamaMichelle Obama

'Black-ish' could get political!

That. Would. Be. AMAZING!

At the Emmys on Sunday, Anthony Anderson let it slip that he's trying to get President Barack Obama and the First Lady to appear on his hit comedy Black-ish! He explained:

"We're petitioning to get Pres. Obama on the show."

But before you roll your eyes and assume a petition won't actually accomplish anything, get this: producers have been talking to the White House directly! Anthony dished:

"They watch the show. They love it. We know them so we've been dealing with them and their people and hopefully they'll say yes."

The actor first learned the Commander-In-Chief and his wife were fans of the sitcom back in January. He says when he met the powerful pair, they gushed about how much they love his show! How awesome!

The whole thing is actually kind of overwhelming to Anthony, but in the best possible way! He said:

"Who would have thought I would be like, 'You know, we're talking to POTUS about being on our show,' while I'm on the red carpet at the Emmys because I'm nominated for that show?"

We really hope Barack and Michelle agree to appear on the ABC program! That would just be the coolest!!! Would U watch their episode, Perezcious readers?
