After winning many a ratings race with hit shows Scandal’ and ‘Revenge, ABC continue on in their efforts to offer their viewers diversity with the welcoming of ‘Cold Blood‘, an African-American led medical thriller.

Info on the conspiracy series below…

Brought to the network by ‘Criminal Minds’ producer Janine Sherman Barrois, ‘Blood’ will tell the story of  Cara West, an African-American doctor who joins the world’s most prestigious hospital New York Memorial.

Once there, it isn’t long before she discovers that there is more than meets the eye at the establishment following the disappearance of one of its doctors, and when she learns that her new colleagues will do anything to save the lives put in their care.

Sound intriguing? ABC sure thought so, buying the series from Barrois and Aaron Kaplin‘s ‘Kapital Entertainment‘, supporting the pair as they  explore the dark side of the medical industry with story lines compared to that of ‘The Firm’s.


Keep it locked on TGJ to discover which African-American actress scores the lead role!

    FI.NA.LLY. I can’t believe that these execs took this long to acknowledge that black actors can slay in roles that aren’t related to the black experience. Thank you Aunty Shonda!

    I just hope that the show will include a black couple. It just seems that dramas on major networks rarely display black love, the lead actor or actress is usually in an interracial relationship (Scandal, Extant, etc.) as if it will be too much to show these lead actors coupled with a black lead actor.

      It’s a slow process. Executives now see African Americans will tune in but will Caucasians if neither lead their skin color.
      Eventually they’ll get it until then patience is the key.

        I get what you are saying but it’s 2014. If executives still feel that Caucasians won’t tune in for a black lead couple, when will they ever feel as though they will? Most likely there will always be the need to have the lead roles split among the races and if two lead characters are romantic the chances of them both being played by an African American are slim. It just takes an executive who is willing to take a creative risk and surround the black couple with Caucasian lead actors in other roles. It’s amazing to me that black people keep taking two steps forward and two steps back when in comes to being featured on major networks.
