Television is about to get more diverse than ever thanks to a collaboration between OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) and the Academy Award winning co-writer of Moonlight, Tarrell Alvin McCraney. A new series, David Makes Man, centering on a coming of a story for a young Black gay man in The Deep South. Not only has OWN greenlit the series, but Oprah describes it as “the best pitch she ever heard!”

David Makes Man has some serious star power behind it, as Michael B. Jordan is also one the executive producers. The series joins other prominent dramatic and original own series like Greenleaf and Queen Sugar. The sneak peek of David Makes Man has already been released and has us intrigued. It stars Phylicia Rashad and newcomer, Akili McDowell. Also cast are Nathaniel Logan McIntyre, Broadway actor Isaiah Johnson, Ade Chike Torbert, Jordan Bolger, Cayden K. Williams and Travis Coles.

You cannot tell much of the plot based on the short trailer, but we suspect based on the appearance of the character and the backdrop it weaves the tale of a kid from the ‘hood, who just so happens to be gay, trying to make a better life for himself by using his wits to leave his failing community behind for good. We also suspect he will find love through experimentation and the eventual acceptance of his sexuality.

What do you all think of the trailer? Will you be watching? Leave us your answers in the comments’ section below!

We love a good viral video show! Usually “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” “Jackass,” or “Ridiculousness” come into mind when we think of them. Thus, we hope this is the beginning of a new gig for Nick and new show for Fox. It will definitely bring some diversity to the content of the network. As you may already know Fox is largely dramas, a few comedies, animated series, and reality shows.

The CW’s line up of DC Comics superhero based series (dubbed “The Arrowverse”) continues to expand as “Stargirl” now joins “Black Lightning,” “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Batwoman,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” and a soon to be filmed series, “Green And The Canaries,” as well as a Superman and Lois Lane centered series.

Stargirl is Courtney Whitmore, a teenage girl armed with “The Cosmic Staff” a weapon that allows her to manipulate and generate various forms of energy and fly. Aided by her stepfather, S.T.R.I.P.E., a former sidekick to the original Starman, she takes on crime and intergalactic threats.

Brec Bessinger as “Stargirl”

Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new drama reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series. The project focuses on the character that started executive producer Geoff Johns’ career as a comic book writer when he created her in 1999, lovingly inspired by his late sister, who was killed in a 1996 plane explosion.

“There is no other character in comic books more special to me than Stargirl, and after searching far and wide I can say there is no other actor on the planet that embodies her more than Brec Bassinger,” said Johns back when the series was announced. “Brec’s warmth, strength, humor and positive energy are core to who Courtney Whitmore is. I’m so grateful she’s signed on for the role.”

We are here for this Stargirl series. She is one DC Comics more obscure heroines, but is nonetheless a powerhouse. She definitely fits in with The CW’s demography and we can see this being a true hit. What do you guys think of this new superhero series? Will you be watching?
