I guess it was too good to be true to see two sexy African American actors star in a primetime series that doesn’t involve dancing or drugs.
Reports say that after just three episodes, Boris Kodjoe’s new romantic action-packed show is on the verge of cancellation.
According to Deadline, the NBC series is fading in the 8pm time slot, managing to finish a faint fourth in the hour.
But why? Are we supporting “Undercovers”?
Many of us want balanced representation on the small screen, but when it’s time to flick the channel to where our mouths are, we seem to fail miserably.
On the other hand, is there any real appeal in “Undercovers,” aside from the sexiness that is Boris Kodjoe? Whether the “Soul Food” alum likes it or not, his star power is in his looks. Kodjoe doesn’t have the Denzel principle, or even that of Idris Elba.
“Undercovers” comes off like an off-beat “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” and while we Black Americans love to see people who look like us on TV, we also want innovative and quality programming.
