You know when you see a trailer and you go: Oh, I can see people taking the completely wrong message from this? That was me and Noughts + Crosses.
First, the news: Peacock has acquired the BBC’s YA drama series Noughts + Crosses, based on the book series of the same name, which imagines a world in which Africa colonized Europe, and one in which, despite the fact that slavery is now a thing of the past, a revolution is rising.
As a thought exercise – and hey, maybe even a book, it sounds interesting, but am I the only one worried that the visual will just give fodder to some people’s idea of victimization? Though I guess art shouldn’t worry about that. But I do.
You can check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think:
The show starts at least one familiar face – Fangirlish favorite Paterson Joseph, who we loved as Connor Mason on Timeless.
