“We’re thrilled to work with FOX SOUL on this important series and expand access to it”
Produced with Publicis Media’s APX Content Ventures, Inside the Black Box’s 10-episode second season is hosted by Emmy® Award winner and NAACP Image Awards recipient Joe Morton (Scandal, Terminator 2: Judgment Day) and celebrity acting coach, director, producer, and casting director, Tracey Moore. The hosts interact with celebrity guests facilitating discussions about the role race plays in the entertainment industry. Talent featured in the second season includes Debbie Allen (Grey’s Anatomy, Fame), Keith David (Nope, Armageddon), Jeffrey Wright (The Batman, Westworld), Malik Yoba (First Wives Club, Designated Survivor), Wendell Pierce (Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, The Wire, One Last Thing), Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Billions, Castle), Rob Morgan (Stranger Things), and Naturi Naughton (Power, Queens).
“Inside the Black Box is a special series for many reasons,” co-host Joe Morton said. “Black performers are often forced to speak words, not in line with their experience. We aim to create a safe space where artists of color can speak their minds and tell their stories.”
“We’re thrilled to work with FOX SOUL on this important series and expand access to it,” said Michael Winter, senior vice president of programming and development of Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment. “Inside the Black Box has powerful moments and insights into race’s role in Hollywood. I know FOX SOUL viewers will enjoy watching the entire series.”
“Inside the Black Box is a unique interactive experience that we are excited to introduce to our viewers,” said James DuBose, general manager of FOX SOUL. “We’re delighted to work with Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment and look forward to this season’s prominent talent and insightful, honest conversations on Black Hollywood.”
