It’s been a long time coming, and we were beginning to think that change was not going to come for the inclusion of “blacker” television series on national broadcasting networks. It doesn’t get any more ethnically diverse than Black & Sexy TV and now, the whole world will see how talented and creative black and brown people are. 2015 has been a strong year for brown people, with a couple of number one films in the box offices including, Straight Outta Compton and The Perfect Guy; and also the success of Producer and director Issa Rae being picked up for an HBO pilot, there is so much to be proud of amongst our beautiful brown community.
It’s about time that BET picked up a series or three that is written, directed by and created for the black community. The three series that are set to premiere in collaboration with the entertainment network are “RoomieLoverFriends” created and written by Dortch and Perrier (starring Andra Fuller and Shayla Hale), “Sexless,” and “Hello Cupid. Before they come to national television, be sure to check the web series out on YouTube, so you aren’t blindsided. Congratulations to the entire Black & Sexy team, we cannot wait to watch.
