Here are some cast photos of some "low brow" scripted tv.

See a difference? Don't get me wrong. I love all of the shows pictured above but it seems as if the people who make "art" aren't really interested in my stories or people who look like me. Also show me a highbrow show that has a plotline involving a married woman getting an abortion, and it's not treated like she's committing some great crime. Or how about a show where a woman who is above a size 12 not only having a robust love life but is actually an object of desire and it's not weird. Or living as a POC in a predominantly white small town.

Trust me there are things wrong with lowbrow, oh are there things wrong, (especially twisted which I will expand on later). I guess I will just have to hope that someone someday will be interested in putting money and quality behind more diverse stories.
