TV academy, actors union celebrate diversity

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.—With hit shows like “Empire,” “black-ish“ and “How to Get Away With Murder,“ diversity is the new normal in TV.

“Diversity no longer means niche,” said Jason George, head of diversity efforts for the actors union. “Diversity is mainstream.”
