Watch Trailer For AMC’s Newest Show Featuring Lennie James
The AMC television network has occasionally been criticized for its lack of, and treatment of, Black characters in the shows it airs. Teyonah Parris became Mad Men’s first black regular character in its fifth season 2012. The Walking Dead can’t afford to kill of another Black man without raising serious eyebrows. Now AMC has created a show in which a Black character plays a competent, central character. Actor Lennie James, who you may recognize from The Walking Dead, plays a cop who, along with his partner (Mark Strong), is responsible for another cop’s murder murder.
