ABC: "Election Led to Roseanne, Idol Revivals; Look at Economic Diversity"


  • The New York Times is reporting that the morning after Donald Trump won the Presidential Election, executives held a meeting to address the lack of economic diversity on their network.

  • ABC had spent years cultivating shows from people of color, different religious backgrounds and different perspectives on gender but not taken on the reality of how other people in other economic brackets are living.

  • ABC President Channing Dungey said: "We had not been thinking nearly enough about economic diversity and some of the other cultural divisions within our own country.

  • Dungey sad this led them to revive both Roseanne and America Idol. He said "Idol is about the American Dream. It's about a girl with a cowboy hat and a boy with a banjo and people from small towns where music has saved their lives in different ways.”

  • The article notes the ABC intends to continue greenlighting shows that show the other side of economic diversity. "In recent history we haven’t paid enough attention to some of the true realities of what life is like for everyday Americans in our dramas. We intend to take that into discussion in the future".
