It’s official: black folks are in again! With the success of new TV shows like How to Get Away with Murder, Black-ish, and Empire, networks and studios are hungry to get their hands on more black properties. Next season there are multiple shows with predominantly black casts or with a black actor in one of the lead roles. Here are some of the potential highlights.
Minority Report (Fox) stars Meagan Good as a detective working with a former precog (Stark Sands) in this follow up to the film of the same name.
Rosewood (Fox) stars Morris Chestnut as an accomplished and ambitious doctor who lives life to the fullest.
People Are Talking (NBC) stars Tone Bell and Bresha Webb as a modern suburban couple.
The Player (NBC) will feature Wesley Snipes in a lead role.
