This week (June 20), we got the trailer for the upcoming five-part CNN original series highlighting the history of Black television. Click inside to check it out!

From executive producers LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s Emmy Award-winning studio The Springhill Company, CNN Original Series See It Loud: The History of Black Television premieres on Sunday, July 9 at 9pm ET/PT. The series will air regularly on Sundays at 9pm ET/PT on CNN.

See It Loud celebrates the achievements of Black actors and creators, examining the historical impact Black culture has on all culture. Today we are in the midst of what is being widely referred to as “The Golden Age of Black Television;” however, this “Golden Age” is the culmination of an eighty-year struggle for Black artists to find a voice and fight for representation. The series takes viewers on a journey from Black television’s origins in sitcoms like The Jeffersons, to blockbuster dramas like Roots. It also explores the emerging opportunities for Black voices in sci-fi and horror, and examines the cultural impact of the reality and unscripted genre on Black culture. Each episode in this five-part series explores the impact of these stories not only on their creators, but on the audiences watching them, forging connections and building communities of shared experience.

The series features interviews with Amanda Seales, Anika Noni Rose, Daniel Ezra, Da’Vinchi, Debbie Allen, Deon Cole, Desus & Mero, Gabrielle Union, Jimmie Walker, Judge Greg Mathis, Kevin Frazier, Lamorne Morris, Laz Alonso, Loni Love, Lynn Whitfield, Mo’Nique, Naturi Naughton, Omari Hardwick, Ray J, Ruben Studdard, Sherri Shepherd, Sonequa Martin-Green, Tatyana Ali, Tiffany Pollard, Tisha Campbell, Vivica A. Fox and many more.

See It Loud is executive produced by LeBron James and Maverick Carter for The SpringHill Company and Amy Entelis and Lyle Gamm for CNN Original Series. Showrunner Jodi Gomes serves as executive producer alongside Jamal Henderson and Philip Byron with co-executive producer Courtney Whitaker.

CNN and The SpringHill Company debuted the official trailer for the series at CultureCon this past weekend (Saturday, June 17) in Los Angeles. Now, you can check it out below!
