Is the U.S. Ready for ‘President Martínez?’ NBC Says Yes! [Well, Not Really]

I looooove television! Because only on TV you get to see fantastic things that would never happen in real life.

Take NBC’s upcoming thriller The Event, which was presented this week as one of the “biggest television events of the upcoming fall season.”

The conspiracy thriller follows Sean Walker (Jason Ritter) who is investigating the disappearance of his fiancé, Leila thereby “exposing the biggest cover-up in U.S. History.” Mind you, all of this is happening while a black, Latino president occupies the White House: President Martínez. Yay!

…Except, of course, that in the world of television, President Martínez is portrayed by Blair Underwood, a non-Latino actor. Perhaps that is because in the near future -and thanks to Ms. Brewer y sus compinches– there will be not many dark, skinned Latino people left to portray Latinos on television.

Who knows? This blogger is already rejoicing with the possibility of having a primo en la Casa Blanca.
