This week I talked with TV producer Michael Levitt about his FOX Thanksgiving special Cause for Paws: An All-Star Dog Spectacular. This celebrity-packed extravaganza is focused on raising awareness and funding for shelter dogs so that they receive the love, care and resources they need to find their forever home.
I'm excited about seeing more and more black people on TV. Today I'm creating my own Web series, and I'm encouraged by what creators like Shonda Rhimes and Kenya Barris have done in network television. Of course, it wasn't always that way. And even now, in this age of new voices and faces of color in the industry, in this age of Obama and Oprah, the struggle continues.
