Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by John Legend and series creators and writers Diallo Riddle & Bashir Salahuddi, each half-hour episode of SHERMAN'S SHOWCASE is hosted by Sherman McDaniels as he takes viewers through time, via music and comedy drawn from the 40-year library of a legendary (but fictional) musical variety show, drawing inspiration from SOLID GOLD, SOUL TRAIN, and ROWAN & MARTIN'S LAUGH-IN. Whether it's a questionably attired funk super group in the 1970s, an up-and-coming MC in the 1980s or an R&B diva from the 1990s, Sherman's Showcase has it all: music, comedy, famous guest stars and dancing with an exuberant host who's been with the show throughout its run. Guest stars include: Andrew "King Bach" Bachelor; Natasha Bedingfield; Common; Morris Day; Tiffany Haddish;Lil Rel Howery; Quincy Jones; Mike Judge; Kenny and Keith Lucas; John Legend; Nigel Lythgoe; Curt Menefee; Vic Mensa; Tawny Newsome; Ne-Yo; Ray Parker, Jr.; Mario Van Peebles; Damon Wayans, Jr.; Marlon Wayans; and Bresha Webb.
On Friday, June 19, 2020 at 10pm ET/PT, AMC premiered "Black History Month Spectacular," a one-hour SHERMAN'S SHOWCASE special, which honors 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, journalist Jemele Hill, Lil Rel Howery, actor and TV host Terrence J, series executive producer and Emmy-, GRAMMY-, Oscar- and Tony-winner John Legend, rapper and activist Vic Mensa, GRAMMY-winner Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, Bresha Webb, Vanderpump Rules' Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz, GRAMMY-winner Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter, Tyrin Turner, Mario Van Peebles, and more.

Two days earlier -- on Wednesday, June 17 -- AMC and IFC announced the renewal of SHERMAN'S SHOWCASE for a six-episode second season, set to air in 2021.
