Blindspotting is a television series airing on Starz since June 2021. It is a spin-off of the 2018 movie of the same name, which was highly acclaimed for its unique storytelling and themes surrounding the African American experience. The series picks up six months after the events of the movie and follows Ashley (played by Jasmine Cephas Jones, who also starred in the film), Miles' longtime partner and the mother of his child, who is trying to rebuild her life after Miles is incarcerated. Unlike the movie, which was centered around Miles, Blindspotting explores Ashley's journey as a single mother, trying to navigate her way through life in the wake of her partner's incarceration.

We are introduced to Ashley as she struggles to balance a demanding job as a waitress, her parenting responsibilities, and an unstable living situation. Despite her efforts to move on, she continues to be haunted by Miles' absence, and her life is thrown into further turmoil when Miles' mother, Rainey (played by the talented Helen Hunt), comes to live with her and her son.

The show delves into themes that are both relevant and timely, such as police brutality, gentrification, and systemic racism, from the perspective of those who are affected by it the most. Blindspotting delivers an unflinching portrayal of urban life and cultural tensions in Oakland, California, weaving in elements of comedy and drama to create a truly unique viewing experience.

In addition to Jasmine Cephas Jones and Helen Hunt, the show also boasts a talented cast, including Jaylen Barron and Candace Nicholas-Lippman, who play Ashley's best friends. Jaylen's character, Trish, is a single mother herself, raising her child in a difficult environment, while Candace's character, Janelle, is a talented artist struggling to make ends meet.

The show's creators, Rafael Casal and Daveed Diggs, who also starred in the original film, bring their personal experiences of growing up in Oakland to the screen, infusing the series with a sense of realism and authenticity that is hard to find in many other shows.

Blindspotting is a show that is both entertaining and thought-provoking, providing a glimpse into the lives of those who are often overlooked and marginalized. It is a must-watch for anyone who is interested in exploring the complexities of the human experience and gaining a deeper understanding of the issues faced by communities of color in urban environments.

Overall, Blindspotting is a powerful and moving series that deserves all the recognition it can get. With a talented cast, a compelling story, and themes that resonate with audiences of all backgrounds, it is a shining example of what can be achieved when creators are given the creative freedom to tell their stories on their terms.

Blindspotting is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (16 episodes). The series first aired on June 13, 2021.
