Abbott Elementary nominated for multiple 2022 Emmy Awards

ABC’s mockumentary series Abbott Elementary has been nominated for seven awards in this year’s Emmys. Quinta Brunson, the show’s creator, is the first Black woman to ever have been nominated for three awards in the comedy category and is also the youngest Black woman to do so, at 32.

Many people have compared the show’s style to be similar to The Office and Parks & Recreation which garnered audiences from those series and have left mostly positive critical acclaim and praise. The show meshes a group of dedicated teachers and a slightly under qualified principal in a heavily underfunded Philadelphia public school, where even though the odds are stacked against them, they still do their best for their students.
