TV REVIEW

TITLE: Roots

DESCRIPTION: 2016 remake of the classic 1977 mini-series about an African slave and his descendants.

DIRECTED BY: 


STARRING:
STUDIO: The History Channel. LeVar Burton, who starred as Kunta Kinte in the original, served as a producer.

MY TAKE: I liked it. A rare instance where a remake actually works.

NOTES:
  • Cost $50 million to make.
  • LeVar Burton has a cameo as the slave Ephraim who stares at Kunta Kinte while being transported in a cage.
