In an event that broke with tradition during this week’s Television Critics Association summer press tour, a gathering of actors, producers and programming creators talked about the state of diversity in the TV business.

Moderated by director and El Rey Network head Robert Rodriguez, the panel included directors Anthony Hemingway (“Underground,” “American Crime Story: The People v O.J. Simpson”) and Victoria Mahoney (“Survivor’s Remorse”); actors Tichina Arnold (“Survivor’s Remorse”) and Jurnee Smollett-Bell (“Underground”); Theresa Vargas Wyatt, head of outreach for El Rey Network; showrunner Carlos Coto (“From Dusk Till Dawn”); D’Angela Proctor, SVP of programming and production, TV One; and director/writer Russ Parr (“Ringside,” TV One’s upcoming boxing film).

TVWeek Open Mic blogger Hillary Atkin filed a full report on the discussion, which you can read by clicking here.
