Los Angeles, March 23 (IANS) Oscar winning actress Helen Hunt was horrified working in Hollywood after doing TV series “Shots Fired” due to the level of diversity behind the camera.
Created by Gina Prince-Bythewood and Reggie Rock Bythewood, “Shots Fired” – which will air on Star World Premiere HD in India – examines how two racially charged shootings bring long festering tensions in this small North Carolina town to the surface.
Hunt plays Governor Patricia Eamons in the series.
“I’ve never worked on a show where above the line and below the line, there were more people of colour,” ew.com quoted Hunt as saying.
She added: “When I went back to work on shows after, I was horrified that I show up all the time on these sets where there’s one (or two) black crew members and rarely a black director on great shows made by smart, progressive people.”
The series will premiere on Star World Premiere HD on Saturday.
