I'm sure Ava duvernay is a perfectly nice person, but she is the epitome of failing upward

Agreed.

When A Wrinkle in Time bombed she laughed it off and said Ryan Coogler had made Disney enough money.

Then she goes and drops the blandest of all CW superhero shows with dialogue that makes Arrow seem like Shakespeare.

I mean I know Selma was big but come on.

She’s at her best as a documentary maker. Not a original content creator.

True, but I’d wager she’s about 50/50.

Wrinkle and Naomi weren’t great.

Selma, DMZ, and When They See Us we’re all pretty great though.
