Talking TV With Ryan and Ryan

Hi there, it's Mo with a podcast all about the Netflix comedy "Master of None." I spoke to co-creator and executive producer Alan Yang and executive producer Mike Schur about the comedy and its origins and its point of view, and we also talked about the state of how TV deals with race, behind the scenes and on screen. These conversations were also part of a couple of big stories I'm dropping this week, on the ABC comedy "Black-ish" and on TV's new, more direct approach to matters of race. If you like this conversation with Schur, by the way, you may like a different conversation with him that we posted a few weeks ago.

Hi, it's Mo here with a conversation with Kenya Barris, the creator and showrunner of the ABC comedy "Black-ish." We talked about the Feb. 24 episode of the show, in which the Johnson family has a series of conversations about police brutality and how to discuss it with the younger Johnson kids. We also discussed the racial landscape of TV and what has and hasn't changed there, and we talked about "Black-ish" in general and what makes it such a strong and versatile addition to the television landscape. About halfway through, executive producer Jonathan Groff joined the conversation as well. If you like this podcast, please check out two others that drop this week -- one with interviews with the cast of "Black-ish," one containing conversations with Alan Yang and Mike Schur, executive producers of "Master of None." And please check out my stories on "Black-ish" and how TV talks about race on the Variety web site, if you care to.
