just now during an npr discussion on the lack of minority representation on network television, the guest (i have no idea who it was, sorry-- i was napping and woke up in the middle of the show) said that the guy behind ER and the white shadow (yeah!) is developing for series (on abc, i *think*) to star "denzel washington's character from devil in a blue dress", aka easy rawlins. i was totally stunned, i have to admit. such a show, if done well, seems like it could be fantastic. that said, in the event that it is picked out of the hundreds of shows in development, i have serious doubts that it would be done in a way that most of us would like...does anyone else know anything about this?
