I was attacked for calling for characters of colour in Chernobyl. But history proves me right | Television & radio | The Guardian
The US TV network HBO has been seen as a TV trailblazer, frequently bringing diverse, multidimensional characters to our screens in the likes of the sci-fi series Westworld, the brilliantly relevant Insecure and the female-led drama Big Little Lies. HBO’s latest hit is Chernobyl, a well-drawn depiction of one of the world’s most famous catastrophes. The show, which was co-created by Sky Atlantic, is the network at its finest: a harrowing, truthful portrayal of a story that should never be forgotten.
