CBS brings more diversity to its fall prime-time TV schedule

CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl, who presented the lineup at a news conference ahead of the network’s presentation to advertisers at Carnegie Hall in New York, said the casting was a continuation of efforts to improve diversity in its programming that began last year. The network’s top-rated new drama, “God Friended Me,” and comedy, “The Neighborhood,” both have black actors in lead roles.
