TV’s Black Renaissance: Reggie Yates in Hollywood

Revolutionary change is shaking up the TV industry in Hollywood. A wave of hit shows like Atlanta, Dear White People and Insecure, all with majority African-American casts, are pioneering a new frankness about race and identity. TV’s Black Renaissance: Reggie Yates in Hollywood follows Reggie Yates (pictured above) to LA and into this ferociously creative and hugely aspirational new world, as he meets leading African-American actors such as Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, True Detective) and Stranger Things star Caleb Mclaughlin, and writers and showrunners from Lena Waithe (Master of None and The Chi) to Justin Simien (Dear White People). Through entertaining encounters with some of the most exciting talent working in the entertainment industry, Reggie tackles the big questions in Trump’s America that the work coming out of this black renaissance addresses, and he explores his own experiences of working in front of, and behind, the camera.

Produced and Directed by Yemi Bamiro, Supervising Producer: Lucy Pilkington, Executive Producers: Neil Crombie and Joe Evans
