Color Television: Actresses to Watch on Primetime TV

While everyone was captivated by the glitz and glamour of the EMMYs, I couldn’t help but notice the lack of African American actresses in the audience and nominations for this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards. While this has remained an ongoing debate throughout the entire mainstream industry, it should be noted that there are a slew of Vixens of color to look out for on your television screens this fall! Here’s an amazing cast.–Nicole Brown

Mindy Kaling

The Office and The Mindy Project

For six years, she’s made us laugh as the hilarious Kelly Kapoor and staff writer on The Office. Now that the comedy is nearing its end, the Indian-born actress is breaking out on her own by starring in and executive-producing The Mindy Project, which premieres September 25 at 9pm on FOX.
