CNN Presents See It Loud: The History of Black Television; Netflix's Tudum Fan Event in Brazil Recap

See It Loud: The History of Black Television

From executive producers LeBron James and Maverick Carter's Emmy(R) Award-winning studio The SpringHill Company, CNN Original Series See It Loud: The History of Black Television premieres on Sunday, July 9 at 9pm ET/PT. The series will air regularly on Sundays at 9pm ET/PT on CNN for 5 episodes. See It Loud celebrates the achievements of Black actors and creators, examining the historical impact Black culture has on all culture. Today we are in the midst of what is being widely referred to as "The Golden Age of Black Television;" however, this "Golden Age" is the culmination of an eighty-year struggle for Black artists to find a voice and fight for representation. The series takes viewers on a journey from Black television's origins in sitcoms like The Jeffersons, to blockbuster dramas like Roots, explores the emerging opportunities for Black voices in sci-fi and horror, and examines the cultural impact of the reality and unscripted genre on Black culture. Each episode in this five-part series explores the impact of these stories not only on their creators, but on the audiences watching them, forging connections and building communities of shared experience.

See It Loud features interviews with Amanda Seales, Anika Noni Rose, Daniel Ezra, Da'Vinchi, Debbie Allen, Deon Cole, Desus & Mero, Gabrielle Union, Jimmie Walker, Judge Greg Mathis, Kevin Frazier, Lamorne Morris, Laz Alonso, Loni Love, Lynn Whitfield, Mo'Nique, Naturi Naughton, Omari Hardwick, Ray J, Ruben Studdard, Sherri Shepherd, Sonequa Martin-Green, Tatyana Ali, Tiffany Pollard, Tisha Campbell, Vivica A. Fox, and many more.
