Scene Profiles | Me, Love & Basketball – by Michelle Owusu


I've always been a fan of TV and film – like many, my weekends were spent crossed legged in front of the square screen in the living room escaping to the wonderful worlds projected at my bright and eager eyes. I could recite all of The Little Mermaid word-for-world in a flash! From Disney I graduated to the CBBCs and CITVs (Art Attack, Byker Grove, Grange Hill and Children's Ward were firm favourites), but soon shows such as Sister Sister, Moesha and The Cosby Show took a tight hold. While it's fair to say British children's TV shows did include diverse cast memebers here and there, these U.S. exports were the first time I really saw myself looking back at me.
