Piece of The Pie is a new franchise of TMZ, which showcases talented people of color who are difficult to stand out in the entertainment industry.
Our goal here is to represent marginalized voices and creators (those with good stories to tell) to raise awareness and ensure that those who dominate the industry can see the benefits they bring.
Antonio Cannadi The screenwriter of a YouTube network series, he wants to write for major streaming networks…but he said that black people make it more difficult to find a job in Hollywood.
Antonio (Antonio) wrote for the TV show “The Deeds of PB and Jay Chou”, but as he told TMZ Loren Lorosa …He has white writers telling him that his looks-tattoos, dark skin and muscles-may scare people who are hiring.
This is really shocking… Antonio said that early in his career in Hollywood, he was told to stop exercising, and whenever he interviewed for writing posture on a TV show, he had to make sure to break the deadlock and put the rest Go in. The room rest assured.
Antonio said he was dealing with stigma and racial prejudice, but he said that it is important to remember this for black creatives who want to establish a foothold in Tinseltown…create your own content and let Hollywood come to you.
Antonio warned black people not to cling to the gates of Los Angeles…On the contrary, he said that being loyal to himself is more important, and success will follow. Ya just has to present your idea first.
