Ebony interviews Meagan Good

Ebony has published their interview with Meagan Good, the star of the upcoming Minority Report!

Thirteen years since Spielberg’s futuristic sci-fi thriller hit the big screen, it’s now been reincarnated on Fox with Meagan Good hand-picked to star as Lara Vega, a cop she describes as “totally bad-ass” but vulnerable a the same time—because as the show unfolds, we find out she’s been through something traumatic.

We here at Fangirl Uprising are so THERE for this show. The more we see and the more we find out about it, the more we look forward to it. fangirlu has seen the leaked pilot and it does not disappoint. We have a real WOC lead here, not some sassy best friend/sidekick and Meagan kills it. Here’s hoping this show kills it in the ratings too.

Judging by the promotion for the show, it looks like Meagan Good will be a fully realized female lead.  It’s sad that even has to be said, but Hollywood doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to women of color leads.  Especially black ones.  So it’s encouraging to see that FOX is putting her front and center in the advertising.

Because I’ve fallen prey to the bait and switch more than once, I’ll be watching with a bit of a side-eye.  But I’m more hopeful than I was before that this time might actually be different.
