History Channel is for some reason remaking Roots.
I honestly can’t imagine why. Reasons I wouldn’t:
1 There are so many African-American classics that haven’t been filmed, or at least not with a budget, and many of them are in the public domain which would save on production costs.
2 The first miniseries is dated but still a high quality work
3 There were so many scandals associated with the original book due to plagiarism and accuracy, plus, Haley forgive me, it just wasn’t that good a novel
But, I’ll probably watch it since it’s so rare for them to do anything that actually has history of any kind in it.
Do you plan to watch it if you have the time and all?
