Powers Undeniable Success
We all know the amount of success of Starz’s Power and its highly anticipated spinoffs Power Book II: Ghost, and Power Book III: Raising Kanan.
Though the amount of attention the shows received are undeniable, mainstream TV media isn’t paying any mind to the black dramas that rack in millions of viewers.
Sascha Calls Out TV Media Ignoring Black Dramas
This grasped the attention of Raising Kanan producer Sascha Penn. The program is one of the most viewed shows, therefore there is no excuse on why mainstream entertainment media continues to ignore it.
Very few entertainment-based publications has ever focused on the shows, and black dramas in general.
“As Raising Kanan‘s first season ends and BMF’s season begins, I feel compelled to point out that, other than the NY Post and New York Magazine, not a single mainstream media publication has reviewed either series,” he wrote on a recent Instagram post.
“Not the New York Times, The Washington Post, The L.A. Times…across the country. Not even trade publications like The Hollywood Reporter and Variety.”
Without directly stating it, he is alluding to the reason Power and its spinoffs is because of the black team behind it.
In the future, hopefully, the shows pick up the attention it deserves from entertainment publication sites.
Especially since this is a pattern being noticed by many in black dramas.
