With new TV shows dropping soon, it’s time to schedule your MID-SEASON TV PREMIER viewing party! Before you invite your friends and family, be on the lookout for these two shows that I’ve picked out for you. I’m sure it will have you and your guests tweeting each and every scene!
THE RAP GAME- Premiere on New Year’s Day on Lifetime and will air Fridays at 10p.m.
Jermaine Dupri and Queen Latifah is partnering with LIFETIME to air an eight-episode series featuring young hip hop artists in Atlanta. The group of rap artist, ages 12 to 16, will work closely with JD (Jermaine Dupri) to become the next Rap sensation. Some of the biggest names in the music industry such as Usher, Ludacris, Da Brat, T.I. and Silentó will featured guest on the show.
Credits for executive producing will go to Queen Latifah and her partner Shakim Compere using the umbrella of Flavor Unit with JD. Production is from Intuitive Entertainment.
I’m actually excited to see this new TV show! This is a great way to keep the millennials attracted to the RAP game. I’m also curious to see fresh and new talents. With every new generation, there’s always a hint of the old and a lot of the new artistic form of rap that you can expect. Is JD going to give us some fire beats? What words of wisdom will the featured guest artist drop for the young artist to take heed? I wonder what they will rap about. It definitely better not be about sex, money, and drugs!
SHOTS FIRED-Date undeclared, but it will air on FOX
Shots Fired is a dramatic, event series from Love & Basketball filmmaker Gina Prince-Bythewood and Empire executive producer Brian Grazer that examines the dangerous aftermath of racially charged shootings in a small town in Tennessee.
The beautiful Sanaa Lathan, was cast as the lead and will play as an expert investigator along with an unnamed cast mate as a special prosecutor from the Department of Justice. Their roles will be to work through the public deliberation, media frenzy and the social vexation to find justice before the locals turn the town upside down!
At first the name was going to be Indictment and it was in working progress for a while. Once the pilot script was completed Fox placed an order and it’s going to be an interesting show to watch especially since the sad stories of black men and women dying by excessive and abusive use of power has been occurring more frequently.
This type of show is not only important to watch as it addresses what’s currently going on in our own neighborhood, but it’s going to evoke some emotions. So, be careful as you watch it. Watch it from an analytical perspective. In other words, watch the show and take a close look at how the story unfolds. However, don’t let the issue of racism, police brutality, police shootings, media misrepresentation, etc. fill your heart with hatred.
Well, there you have it! Thanks for reading! Follow me on IG: @Rosviestyle
