Could it be the black-ish effect?

Following ABC’s new series about a successful Black family, producer Will Packer has sold not one, but two television scripts to NBC!

The first, Like Father, Like Son, is a half-hour sitcom inspired by actual events in Packer’s life and focuses on a recently divorced man who finds out he has a teenage son from a one-night-stand in college. The second, a half-hour comedy titled #PeopleAreTalking, plans to address topics concerning race and sex, according to Indiewire.
