As the first Asian American actor in the lead role in a “Star Wars” film, he faced online harassment and bullying that eventually forced him to leave social media.
No one is more apt to discuss the change in Hollywood than the show’s executive producer, Debra Martin Chase.
She is the first African American woman to produce a feature film that grossed over $ 100 million (“Courage Under Fire”) starring Danielle Washington and Meg Ryan, and the first African American female producer to sign an overall deal with a major studio Huh.
“This is the best I’ve done in Hollywood,” Chase told CNN in a recent interview.
“It’s not to say that there’s not much work to do because there certainly is,” she said. “But I think there is finally a recognition in Hollywood that there is an audience about people of color, about women of color, about women and can be profitable.”
The original “Equalizer” aired in the 80s and starred Edward Woodward. This time around, Chase said, Queen Latifia is kicking the role because “she’s totally believable kicking some ass, and is beautiful as well.”
Chase said, “We have this amazing creative team, but I also think the world is ready to see a black woman who is not taking any prisoners and helping people out there who need help is.” “The world is not in a great place right now, so don’t we want someone who can set the scales right for us?”

Not to mention the power of the love story at the center of the series.
Now, if only we could get some of these female heroines to work on things like paid equity in the real world.
