I think television full-stop should be more interracial. It’s shockingly white, to this day. And I realise that I’ve done very white dramas in the past - look at Queer As Folk, I would cast it very differently now. It’s very easy as a middle class white male to cast everything as middle class and white. You need to watch, the world around you is changing.
