Two days ago, I asked the internet for some TV show/movie recs that featured, were produced by or directed by more diverse people so that I could be consuming more diverse media in general as opposed to just reading diversely.
The internet was on point and gave me A LOT of recommendations. I am not making a list of everything that was recommended because that would be a long list but I thought I’d share a couple of shows recommended to me so that you might also add them to your to-be-watched lists! 🙂
1. The Get Down (a Netflix Original)
The Get Down was recommended 5 times and because I live under a rock, I hadn’t heard it prior to this. It sounds right up my ally though and I WANTS TO WATCH IT.
2. The Fosters
I usually don’t watch a lot of family dramas but I am sure there will be a little comedy anyway and I JUST WANT TO WATCH THIS SHOW.
3. Queen Sugar
Another family drama set in Louisiana where a fam moves back to Louisiana to claim their inheritance- an 800 acre sugarcane farm. I can already feel the intenseness of this show. Plus it comes highly recommended.
4. Luke Cage (a Netflix Original)
Netflix has been doing a pretty great job I think with having more diverse superheroes on screen so I am pretty excited to see Luke Cage!
5. Dark Matter
This sounds like a great show for the 100 fans? Like I havent watched the 100 but I KNOW LOTS OF PEOPLE LOVE IT.
A lady in a sport dominated by dudes? WANT. NEED. I was told there is a chance it may not be renewed for another season though and that is so disheartening.
For more recs, go click on the image of my tweet and feel free to scroll through replies! 🙂
Are you adding any of these shows to your watch list? Do you have any recs for me or want to push these shows on me even more? LET ME KNOW.
