Boris Kodjoe spoke at the recent TCA about "Undercovers" having two Black leads. Here's what he said:

"I think it's important to recognize the fact that it is somewhat -- I don't know if you want to all it revolutionary, but that is -- it's not the norm, although it should be the norm because that's what the world looks like," Kodjoe said. "The world is diverse, and we come in all kinds of different shapes, sizes, and shades. But... traditionally in TV it hasn't been the case, and therefore it needs to be commented on. So I want to make a point that it is important that we get a chance to, I don't know, be trailblazers or door openers or whatever you want to call it. On the other hand, let's keep in mind or let's inspire people to regard it as normal so that more and more people don't consider it taking a chance, but just being creative. And at the end of the day, that's what we all try to be. Even though it's a corporate industry and even though it's show business, to have that freedom is something that we aspire to. So Josh and J.J. have, I think, you know, led the way, and hopefully the world will open up to it." - Full article at HitFix
