The world has seen protests for police reform ever since the passing of George Floyd. Many companies showing support for Black Lives Matter are making changes to include racial equality in their companies and branding. Television shows are following suit and it has already been announced that the long running “Cops” show has been axed.
Now Terry Crews has announced that the last few shows of the hit cop comedy show, “Brooklyn Nine Nine”, scrapped four new episodes. The actor stated,
“[We] had four [new] episodes all ready to go and they just threw them in the trash,” the actor said. “We have to start over. Right now we don’t know which direction it’s going to go in.”
Crews added that this is “Black America’s #MeToo movement” and said the cast came together and had “a lot of somber talks about it and deep conversations and we hope through this we’re going to make something that will be truly groundbreaking this year. We have an opportunity here, and we plan to use it in the best way possible.”
