Magic Johnson says Aspire is aiming for black families with a slate of enlightening and positive programming “” the sort of fare that everyone can gather in the living room to watch, “the way I grew up,” Johnson fondly recalls.
Aspire will air movies, documentaries, music and comedy, as well as faith and inspirational programs.
Initially, the schedule consists of acquisitions, including long-ago series like “The Bill Cosby Show,” “I Spy,” “Julia” and “The Flip Wilson Show.” The network promises documentaries chronicling real-life events, people and places that shaped black history. Movies include “Shaft,” “Bird,” “Sarafina!” and “Lilies of the Field.”
