9-1-1 premiered this year and it’s an awesome addition to the FOX prime-time lineup. It’s great seeing Angela Bassett in this role especially since we haven’t had a woman of color in a lead police role since Sanaa Lathan in Shots Fired 2017 and Regina King in South land 2013. The diversity of the cast members as well is amazing, shining light on all walks of life, age, race, gender, and sexuality. Angela’s strong personality as Athena Grant gives the show its edge, it also gives me CSI Miami vibes with the bizarre emergency situations that kept that show interesting to watch. I also love the connected story-line message at the end of every episode. Bassett also produces episodes on the action thriller, showing her multi-talented sides. The show also has fan-favorite Aisha Hinds you may recall from Underground, Rockmond Dunbar, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Oliver Starkk, newcomer Ryan Guzman, and Peter Krause.
