Black Girls Rock Fall TV
Black Girls are rocking the Fall TV season. From gritty and gruesome to comedy and suspense, it feels so good to know quality content and diversity have made their way onto prime-time networks.
Jada-Pinkett Smith gave viewers a dose of Fish Mooney in Monday’s FOX premiere of Gotham, a play off of the Batman series. Nicole Beharie took on horseman and darkness as the second season of Sleepy Hollow made it’s Monday night opener as well.
And the week will continue with brown faces showing their skills on a variety of shows. Here’s the scoop on what we’ll be watching:
Gotham – Monday Nights on Fox 8/7c
If none other than the reason it’s so good to see Mrs. Jada-Pinkett Smith back on the TV screen, but she’s not playing nice this time around. Fish Mooney is a witty, powerful plotting mob boss with her eyes set on ownership. She’ll slay or have you slayed if she feels an inkling of betrayal. Loyalty is her comfort and ownership is her air.
Sleepy Hollow– Monday Nights on Fox, 9/8c
The premiere of a second season is reason enough to tune in and see the work Ms. Nicole Beharie has been putting in as Abbie Mills in this dark drama. She’s a fierce detective teamed up with an 18th -entury Revolutionary War veteran fighting against supernatural beings and horseman. Suspense and drama–it gets interesting.
State of Affairs – Monday Nights on NBC 10/9c
Madam President, you may now take the floor. The incredible Alfre Woodard will join the Monday night lineup as President Roberta Payton in State of Affairs, premiering November 17. Who run the world?
