Our Kind of People, a new show from Karin Gist and Lee Daniels, who has worked on some of Fox’s biggest hits recently including Empire, will premiere on the network in the autumn. A writer/executive producer, Gist has worked with Daniels before (on Star) and is well known for her work on shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Revenge.
The Our Kind of People crew (and the network) have their sights set on Empire, one of three new shows coming on Fox in the autumn, along with The Big Leap and Alter Ego. Here’s all we know about the people who are most like us so far.
Our Kind of People Season 1 – When will the show release?
Lee Daniels was the mastermind of the six-season smash hit Fox television series Empire, as previously noted. Now, Tuesdays at 9 p.m., Our Kind of People will take up the time slot that Empire previously occupied. The Resident will be followed by Our Kind of People on Tuesdays. According to Fox, Our Kind of People will air its first episode on Tuesday, September 21, at 10 PM ET/PT.
Our Kind of People Season 1 – Who will be casting for the show?
Nadine Ellis, who plays a single mother named Leah Franklin-Dupont on Our Kind of People, is the show’s standout performer. Ellis has appeared in a number of films and television shows, including Timeless, Let’s Stay Together, Jane the Virgin, and Shameless. Morris Chestnut is Leah’s husband, Joe Morton is her father Franklin, Yaya DaCosta is Angela Vaughn, and Debbie Morgan is Patricia Williams, called Aunt Piggy.
Our Kind of People Season 1 – What to expect from the plotline?
Lawrence Otis Graham’s novel Our Kind of People served as the inspiration for the film. The narrative takes place on the Martha’s Vineyard enclave of Oak Bluffs, which has a long history of being home to the affluent and powerful Black elite. As a single mother, you’re trying to enter into that society with a new hair care product designed to showcase the inherent beauty of Black women.
When a horrible truth from her mother’s history is finally revealed, it will not only upset her life but the whole town of Oak Bluffs. The series will be a soapy, exciting examination of race and class in the US and an unabashed celebration of African-American perseverance and accomplishment, according to Fox
