Both the BBC Two and ITV2 are beginning to show a series of BAME related programmes. ITV2 are the first off the block with a series of comedy pilots before they broadcast the Mobo Awards on Friday.
The first of these, All About the McKenzies, has actually been around for a while. It began as a series online in 2012, and an edited version appeared on TV, but only in the capital on London Live. Created by and starring Samuell Benta, the story follows Samuell McKenzie, who has dreams of Hollywood stardom, but is currently stuck in the family home after breaking up with his girlfriend, the mother of his child.
Other comedy pilots being shown by ITV2 this week include music sitcom Dropperz, panel show I’m Sorry, I Didn’t Know and mockumentary What’s the Facts?
All About the McKenzies is on ITV2 at 20.30.
