Empire had the Smollet issue and half of the buddy cop duo left Lethal Weapon which completely defeats the purpose. What about the others?
As I mentionned a few pages back, there's also Carole & Tuesday this season, although the wedding is only announced, not shown (yet).
So about She-Ra… I can't say I'm entirely surprised, but it's nice anyway. From the little I've seen, the show itself seems pretty decent too.
"The Cool Kids" lasted a lot longer than I thought it would.
Don't know. Guess it was just a ratings issue.
I feel like Fox's words will turn out to be empty now that they're owned by Disney who does give a lot of lip service to superficial diversity but is generally still on the conservative (i.e. cautious) side when it comes to content.
No, that’s the Fox Networks, which continue to remain an independent entity. That was actually a key provision of the deal because Disney acquiring the networks meant they would have acquired (and probably immediately shut down) Fox News, on top of them already owning ABC.
Also what Disney does on TV and what it does in the movie theatres are two pair of shoes.
More proof of concept fan films seem to have hit over the past week without my noticing. This is a take on Static.
It’s a shame there is so much litigation behind the Milestone stuff given that everyone and their mother is getting a superhero film.
Honestly, the previous troper undersold it. The vast majority of the Ship Tease is gay, even the characters in hetero relationships get gay Ship Tease, the primary Will They or Won't They? in the show is the gay Foe Yay between the villain and the hero, and of the three explicit relationships shown in the first two seasons, two are gay (only two other relationships are mentioned, one of which is gay and one of which is hetero).
It's not a romance show, but it's still stuffed to the gills with as much gay stuff as they can fit without edging out the action.

Julia Hart, filmmaker of Fast Colour, a superhero movie featuring three generations of black women, criticizes the white male gatekeepers that held back promotion and distribution of the movie.
I want to see this movie so badly, but it didn’t have a single showing in my state.
I saw it a month ago, and liked it a lot, but there were only two theaters playing it hours away. It deserves a good streaming deal.
Seriously, if Marvel sleeps on Fast Color's cinematographers then they might as well be flushing money down the toilet.

Trailer for the Black-ish spinoff, Mixed-ish, which focuses on Bow's youth as a mixed girl.
x4 - This is exactly what I’m talking about. For all the talk of “diverse” hirings, it still feels like the same...15 or so people writing these “diverse” stories. Because when genuinely new voices try to speak, they get the mic taken from them.

According to Business Insider, One Day at a Time, said by Netflix to be cancelled for not being popular enough, was the 9th most viewed streamed show this year.
More viewed than Daredevil, Bojack Horseman, Fuller House, and The Handmaid's Tale.

That makes a bad look for Netflix, its it implies they are as greedy as EA and Ubisoft (and every other "live service" peddler) or have more ulterior motives for the cancellation.
Apparently they're claiming the views didn't go up until after the cancellations were official.
This seems like Everybody Hates Chris but with a female protagonist and a interracial family.
A trailer and premise for upcoming drama series Not Just Me starring Britanny Snow, Emily Osment and Megalyn Echikunwoke
How does this relate to the thread?
Well it's a series about three women, one of whom is black.
I’d argue that’s too low a bar for notability in television but whatever.
A trailer for the Latino led reboot of Party of Five that will be airing on Freeform.
The book Eleanor and Park is being developed into a movie.
Here’s why... it shouldn’t. In short, it’s an Orientalist nightmare.
Oh boy. The second link goes into much more depth and analysis of the book's issues while the first is a good showcase of how weak the prose is to begin with. It is rather annoying when I see literature use ethnic surnames as first names and vice versa. Okoye is another example, being an Igbo surname, although that particular issue is not the films' fault and comes from Priest himself.
