Currently, neither network television nor cable offera a series starring an interracial obviously sexually involved romantic couple as lead characters,specifically, a black woman and a white man. My paper explores this issue through a documentary featurimg an interracial couple(black woman,white man) actor/comedians who along with a psychologist and excerpts from a banned children's book and an original TV pilot with the characters in question, I attempt to determine some answers. A newly developed evaluation check list has been included in the conference paper which has been previously submitted. Jacqueline Ann Brown
