Does Sci-fi TV Crime series qualify as Black narrative?

I am acquainted with a local Emmy award winning filmmaker where I live who is producing a reboot of his tv crime series from 2008.  Although he is black, he writes and produces material that does not come from the Black experience.  Does the fact that if something is written, produced and directed by a black person still qualify as a black narrative?  Out of Darkness: Cleveland is a black crime sci-fi drama about a shadow devouring crime.  Where they used to hide in the shadow, now they are being devoured by it.  So, this is a black narrative that isn't really about black people.
