Nathalie Kelley, the leading actress of ‘Baker and The Beauty’ won’t let go of the show without a brawl with ABC network. Lately, there is a statement from Kelley calling ABC ‘extremely tone-deaf’ she says, “We are seeing now more than ever that representation is important for Black and brown people of color. How we are represented on our television shows determines how society sees us, and the empathy and support they will grant our communities. When we are constantly depicted as narcos and maids, we can’t expect to find favor with voters when they go to the polls and elect leaders who will decide on the fate of immigrants.”
‘Baker and The Beauty’ is a romantic- comedy-drama which was aired on ABC on 13, April 2020 by Dean Georgaris. This is a story of an international star, Noa Hollander whose relationship is ended because she fell in love with a blue-collar baker, Daniel Garcia. The international star is no one else but Nathalie Kelley and the baker is Victor Rasuk.
Nevertheless, after featuring one season, ABC has suddenly took a step back to feature the other season of ‘Baker And The Beauty’. ABC on June 15, 2020, revealed that they won’t be returning with season 2 of Baker and The Beauty. Karey Bruke President of ABC entertainment revealed in an interview with Deadline that, “Baker and the Beauty is a show I was personally very fond of.” In response to which Kelley says that, “Baker and the Beauty is a show that depicts Latin families as warm, lovable, full of joy and compassion, and humor. A cancellation by ABC means that there are now no shows on the networks with a Latinx cast. At a time when the public is marching in the streets demanding representation and diversity this is an extremely tone-deaf decision.”
After the news went viral, a petition was formed by fans which Kelley made everyone sign to bring back the show. The fans and Kelley are hoping to revive back the season 2 of ‘Baker and The Beauty’ on ABC or to find any other platform for featuring the show.
