banned from amazon,
is d.w. Leonard’s new show too fire for tv???

“In Black & White: David & Brian” is an original comedy series by rebel director, D.W. Leonard. Actors David “D’Black” Roberts and Jason Crowley star in the titular roles.

in black & white: david and brian- Q&A with show creator, d.w. leonard

Due to financial hardship two men, one Black the other White, become roommates. With nothing in common and racial tension running high, can this odd couple make peace, or at least find a good pizza spot? – Comedy, satire, political commentary – Adult language and situations.

Question: Why was “In Black and White,” (IBW) banned from Amazon?

D.W. Leonard – I mentioned castration, racism, and atheism all in the pilot episode. In a tasteful way of course.

Q: What was the inspiration for IBW?

D.W. – I was always a big Norman Lear/Gary Marshall fan. They gave us honest, comedy that came out of great characters and situations. I try to do the same, with an adult slant. So it’s a little different.

Q: Aren’t you afraid that your honesty might scare some people?

D.W. – That’s the thing with comedy. You scare some people, inspire others. Lear’s, “All in the Family,” scared the crap out of people, but they came around. It’s genius.

Q: IBW isn’t exactly for children. You might have to take it to HBO or something. Is that the plan?

D.W. – Definitely. I’d love the opportunity.

I’m a teacher. You can call me a writer, producer, what have you, but I teach. I write about things we SEE and don’t SAY. My goal is to teach, to entertain, to shock and provoke people into being what the creator intended: fine with being totally screwed up. If I don’t get you now, I’ll get you next time.
