The 2015-2016 upfronts were announced last week and networks presented their line-ups for the fall season and 2016 mid-season replacements. While it can’t all be attributed to the Empire effect, the networks are “diversifying” — or as ABC’s Queen Bee, Shonda Rhimes, calls it “normalizing — their dramas and comedies. The big four, ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox will have new series with people of color. Comedian Ken Jeong of Community is the star of ABC  sitcom Dr. Ken, Ugly Betty‘s America Ferrera will star in the NBC sitcom Superstore which she’s also producing and glitzy Fox show Rosewood, will center around Morris Chestnut as Miami’s top pathologist. To read more about the new trend, you can head over to our guest article on The Root.
