MORE BLACK LEAD ACTORS THIS FALL ON BROADCAST TV SERIES

Last season there wasn’t a broadcast drama series with a black lead until Shonda Rhimes’ Scandal launched in the spring with Kerry Washington as the star. That series is coming back next season joined by several new ones toplined by black actors, a rarity on broadcast television, which has seen only a handful of dramas with black actors as the leads in the past decade. The list of newcomers includes ABC’s Last Resort starring Andre Braugher, Infamous, whose lead is played by Meagan Good and the CW’s Cult starring Jessica Lucas. Additionally, Fox in keeping in midseason contention its legal drama pilot Guilty toplined by Cuba Gooding, Jr. Surprisingly, among comedies, which have been far more welcoming to black actors than dramas with such long-running sitcoms as Cosby and My Life And Kids, there is only one that features a black actor in a lead role, NBC’s Guys With Kids, where Anthony Anderson plays one of the three leads. (There is a new comedy series with a minority single lead, Fox’s The Mindy Project, created by and starring Indian American Mindy Kaling.)
