"Kristal Brent Zook bears witness to black writers and producers' struggle for control of authorship and authentic ethnic representation in prime-time television. She provides a valuable behind-the-scenes look at the combative reality of TV production."--Warrington Hudlin, President, The Black Filmmaker Foundation
"Engaging....Zook raises significant issues and wriotes in an accessible style."--Publsihers Weekly
"Zook conveys the spirit of modern TV programming strategy as well as providing a cogent account of a flourishing entertainment phenomenon at the time of its budding."--Booklist
"Zook details how in American television, ethnicity, gender, and race are marketable commodities just like beer and apple pie."--Kirkus Reviews
"[A] well-written, extensively researched study....Zook persuasively argues that these often-criticized productions are landmarks in their presentation of 'African-American characters as multilayered, historical subjects who are ever-conscious of the collective. Especially fascinating is her description of how the fledgling Fox Network created a core African American audience and then abandoned it in the quest for a mainstream white audience."--Library
"Zook conveys the spirit of modern TV programming strategy as well as providing a cognent account of a flourishing entertainment phenomenon at the time of its budding." --Mike Tribby, Booklist
