In honor of Black History Month, and part of FOX’s #TVForALL campaign, effective today, February 2, all 12 episodes of first season drama “Our Kind of People” are now available to view for free on Tubi, the streaming service from FOX Entertainment.
“Our Kind of People” is inspired by Lawrence Otis Graham’s provocative, critically acclaimed book, “Our Kind of People: Inside America’s Black Upper Class,” and takes place in the aspirational world of Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard, a historical stronghold where the rich and powerful Black elite have come to play for more than 50 years.
The series stars Yaya DaCosta (“Chicago Med,” “All My Children”), Morris Chestnut (“The Resident”), Joe Morton (“Scandal”), Nadine Ellis (“Let’s Stay Together”), Lance Gross (“Hawaii 5-0”), Rhyon Nicole Brown (“Empire”), Kyle Bary (“Ginny & Georgia”), Debbi Morgan (“Power Book II: Ghost,” “All My Children”) and newcomer Alana Bright.
There’s no word yet on whether “Our Kind of People” will receive a second season from FOX but in an interview with Deadline, series creator Karin Gist said, “If we get a second season, it’s going to be even more explosive. There will be more family complications, about the sisters, and bringing the family back together. I’m also excited about adding some new characters that shake up the world a bit and exploring the themes of power and access. I think that’s really relevant to what’s going on in our country, particularly through the lens of this really wealthy African American family. I’m really excited about where we could take this show and I know the audience is too.”
In addition to “Our Kind of People,” the digital documentary “Making History in Hollywood” is also available on Tubi and features Malcolm-Jamal Warner (“The Resident”), Brian Michael Smith (“9-1-1: Lone Star”), Dulcé Sloan (“The Great North”), Kyla Pratt (CALL ME KAT), Sierra McClain (“9-1-1: Lone Star”), Karin Gist (“Our Kind of People”) and Debbi Morgan (“Our Kind of People”), as they discuss their triumphs and personal experiences working in Hollywood while spotlighting notable figures who inspired them.
This month, #TVForALL debuts a special Black History Month anthem, written and performed by Tisha Campbell Martin and Dani Wright, and produced by PK. The anthem will be shared across local FOX stations and FOX digital all month long. Launched in early 2020, the campaign provides a space to highlight, champion and celebrate diverse voices across FOX Entertainment.
