This week TV shows announced their fall lineups and we can tell you one thing for sure – there’s no lack of Black folks on the air this fall.
The runaway success of shows like Scandal, The Haves and the Have Nots and Being Mary Jane along with the spate of reality shows with black casts and their rabid Twitter/social media followings have apparently impressed network TV executives enough to bet on Black.
Viola Davis, Larry Fishburne, Jada Pinkett Smith, Tracee Ellis Ross, Anthony Anderson, Larry Whitmore, Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Malik Yoba and Alfre Woodward will all be on your TV screen this fall.
Here’s are just a few of the hottest new shows and their trailers for fall.
