‘Justice By Any Means’: TV One Launches Riveting New Crime Series Featuring Cold Cases Solved By Family, Civilians (THE INQUISITR NEWS)

Justice By Any Means is a riveting new true-crime series that TV ONE is rolling out tomorrow night. The long-awaited show formerly entitled Unstoppable, will tell the stories of people who have fought for justice for their murdered loved ones. It will be hosted by Faith Jenkins. With Investigation Discovery in the lead for true-crime documentary programming, TV One gives them some stiff competition by creating their own crime-based shows particularly geared toward the African American audience. Justice By Any Means comes on the heels of their hit show Fatal Attraction, which tells the stories of love gone wrong. In Monday night’s Justice By Any Means, you’ll see common people taking up the investigation, where law enforcement has fallen off due to lack of evidence. Often family members, these individuals breathed new life into the unsolved cases by either putting pressure on investigators to find the killers or by locating the killer’s identity for themselves. You’ll hear first hand accounts of how these tenacious justice seekers examined the case and sought out clues that helped them piece the puzzle together, according to Futoncritic. Read More »

Those are things that actually happened in real life,” she says. “I’m stuck on the fact that these things actually happened. All those other things are just made-up stories.” Read More »

Viola Davis Defies Hollywood Stereotypes as She Keeps It Real: ‘I Didn’t Want to Be the Vogue Woman’ (Video) (The Wrap)

In TheWrap Magazine’s Emmy cover story, the bold and outspoken actress tackles ageism, sexism and racism in Hollywood as she strives to portray a real person, not a TV character A version of this story first appeared in the print edition of TheWrap Magazine’s Emmy Comedy-Drama Issue. When Viola Davis stepped on a Philadelphia set to shoot the pilot for a new Shonda Rhimes drama in 2013, strutted up to a chalkboard and said the line, “This is Criminal Law 100–or as I prefer to call it, ‘How to Get Away With Murder,’” little did she know that the show would thrust her into the Emmy race two years later. But she probably wouldn’t have been fazed even if she’d known: The veteran actress had already won a Tony and become only the second African-American actress, after Whoopi Goldberg, to be nominated for Oscars in both the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress categories (for “The Help” and “Doubt,” respectively).
