What We Know About Blackish Star Marsai Martin's New Interior Design Show

Marsai Martin may only be 17 years old, but she has had a successful career (via IMDb). She started acting in 2014 and quickly rose to fame thanks to her role as Diane Johnson on the popular sitcom "Black-ish." The show is wildly popular and just last year brought in record-high ratings (per The Hollywood Reporter). With the show moving to Tuesday nights, it raked in a 0.64 rating among adults 18-49 and 3.1 million viewers, a new record for the show.

The show announced it was wrapping up after its 8th season, breakout star Martin shared her experience working on a popular comedy show (via ABC News). "I don't know how I got so lucky. Being a part of a show, so impactful yet, on-camera and behind the scenes, so sweet and inspiring and amazing."

With the show sadly wrapping up, Martin is taking on a new path. She will be hosting her very own interior design show!

Her design show helps revamp teenagers bedrooms

Aside from working on "Black-ish," Martin made headlines in 2019 for becoming the youngest executive producer to work on a major production with her film "Little" (via CNN). It's no surprise that with so many successful projects under her belt that she would take on another one.

According to The Root, Martin has a new interior design show hitting the streaming platform Discovery+ on January 15. It's called "Remix My Space with Marsai Martin" and by no means is a design show outside of Martin's wheelhouse. She shared, "You know me from my roles in film and television and, yes, acting is great," adding, "But I'm really obsessed with design. A teen's room should be their sanctuary, so I'm surprising amazing people who are doing incredible things for our world."

The show is revolutionary because home design shows tend to lack representation when it comes to race. Martin will not only be helping teens, an overlooked demographic, but she will also be doing so as one of the first women of color to host a home design show.

She gushed, "The best part about remixing teens' rooms — besides all the cool things I'm still learning about design — is that it helps them move into their future," she shared. "These awesome people are so busy living their best lives and helping others that their sanctuaries get left in the past. I want to help them take care of themselves too."
