WGA Reports Little Diversity Among TV Writers
Prior to Shondra Rhimes the perception in the industry was "black writers can't write for white characters". (Daytime soap operas have, reportedly, employed one black writer in the last 30 years.) However, with that notion dispelled, (Rhimes has produced 4 hit shows), how will the television industry fix its diversity problem. With an increasingly diverse audience, and a growing abundance of viewing choices, will the need to remain competitive outweigh old practices.
