Speaking as a dude who spent the 90's obsessed with Black Sitcoms as well as the business of television, this was an insanely dope and thorough read.

I’ll never forget how kids used to call UPN the “you people network” and WB the “we black” channel. Having seen how Fox expertly played that game earlier in the decade, I already knew the jig was coming.

I look at streamers like Hulu and Netflix as being past the lifecycle of leasing older content to attract viewers, like you said they’ve already pivoted to originals.

We’ll see some enterprising company swoop in and take advantage of the underserved market of ethnic 90's (and early 00's) shows eventually, when it comes to tech we’re always late to the party.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
