Genius: Aretha
"Genius: Aretha" Emmy contender Erivo needs an Oscar to gain EGOT status, while "Respect" star Hudson needs an Emmy and a Tony.
Despite Erivo's captivating performance, "Genius: Aretha" is a complex tale, messily told.
Aretha’s son Kecalf Franklin says the network didn't cooperate with the estate, and that they won't be tuning in.
The next few weeks will bring series starring Cynthia Erivo, Steven Yeun, Anthony Mackie, Demi Lovato, Emilio Estevez, Blake Griffin, and SpongeBob SquarePants.
Cynthia Erivo will play Aretha Franklin in the upcoming third season of National Geographic's "Genius," which finally has a new release date.
And yet the limited series Emmy race remains overstuffed.
The "Genius" franchise will return to the Emmy fray on May 25th with its latest installment.
