My dearest and most delightful reader, ‘tis I, Lady Welpington of The Root, back with another roundup of Black entertainment happenings that I’m sure you’ll be most pleased to hear about. As we are by now well aware, the giant machine we all know as Hollywood doesn’t always invest in TV and film starring folks who look like us, and when they do, the word just doesn’t get out the way I should like it to. Due to that fact, I will try my hardest, dear reader, to keep you not only informed but intrigued about these upcoming shows and films, in the hopes that you will tune in when the appropriate time comes. This week, we have a handful of news from The House of Deadline, Variety Manor, and The Royal Hollywood Reporter. And I hear that there has also been some buzz about the ton of royal reboots and renewals.
So without further ado, let us make haste to the roundup. First things first: Let’s get things started with our Dazzling Diamonds of the Show. This is where we find our ladies of the telly and cinema who have secured new deals and new roles in upcoming series and films.
