Januray 2012 issue of Upscale magazine

Tracee Ellis Ross and Malcolm Jamal Warner, the stars of the new hit series Reed Between the Lines, gets close in January’s issue of Upscale Magazine. Inside the issue, both actors address critiques and comments about their new show being compared the The Cosby Show as well as their magical onscreen chemistry.

Hear are some excerpts from the issue:

On the onscreen chemistry

Tracee Ellis Ross: I didn’t have a picture in my head of who should be my (onscreen husband) and first moment with him was so palpable… doing scenes with Malcolm does not feel like acting. It’s like it just happens, and I think that’s the magic that people long for.

Malcolm Jamal Warner: We have a great rapport and it’s probably one of the best non-physical affairs I’ve ever had.

On their show being compared to ‘The Cosby Show’

Tracee Ellis Ross: In our world, it’s always easier for people to put a handle on something so they can grasp what it is like, If we could in any way, shape or form hold a candle to what Cosby did, represented and was, then we have succeeded.

Thoughts on the show

Malcolm Jamal Warner: I think people will definitely tune in because of [the value Tracee and I bring to the network], and they’ll walk away feeling that the show is refreshing. This is a show that we can all be proud of. None of us is Bill Cosby. We’re not trying to recreate Cosby. What we are trying to recreate is the universality and the timelessness.

You can’t deny their chemistry on screen and so what if the show may resemble the infamous Cosby Show. We need more series/sitcoms that have family dynamics and also teach certain lessons and morals. The Cosby Show did it for our past generation and Reed Between the Lines is doing it for our generation. Not to mention it’s so nice to see Tracee Ellis Ross back, especially for all of those Girlfriends fans and Mr. Warner is certainly eye candy for all the ladies.

Lord knows we didn’t need another reality show.
