Lena Dunham to Make Girls Less … White

Girls triple threat writer, director, and actress Lena Dunham is responding to criticisms that her HBO show is waaaay to Caucasian.  Pegged as sort of an anti-Sex and the City, Girls received four Emmy nominations for its first season.  A comedy that displays living single and working in New York in a far less glamorous light than City, Girls has quickly become a cornerstone to the young actresses career, but will she address the diversity issues in a way that doesn’t seem forced.

Dunham has said that joining Girls will be “a multitude of new characters in the show. There are some of color. Some are not. Some are Caucasian. “  Dunham pulled no punches in saying the changes were due to viewers “who are women of color who want to see themselves reflected on screen.”

Dunham also addressed the frequent nudity on Girls and how she handles that in her ‘real’ life. “There may be a time when I have to explain to my daughters, ‘You probably shouldn’t be naked on television.’ Most situations, it’s not a good idea to be naked on television.” said Dunham.

Girls Returns for its second season on HBO in January.
