Shadow and Act reports that award-winning director Steve McQueen is planning to make a BBC drama on the black experience in Britain, from 1968 to 2014.

McQueen says the series will be “epic in scope,” and will chronicle the lives of a group of friends and their families from 1968 to 2014.

He added:

I don’t think there has been a serious drama series in Britain with black people from all walks of life as the main protagonists.

But Steve what about the Channel 4 drama Top Boy???

*sarcasm*

If McQueen is behind this project then you know there will be no sugar-coating and watering down of the black experience in Britain.

This is going to be deep.
