Diversity and stereotypes are difficult to talk about in any situation, but that’s especially true in Hollywood. NPR TV Critic Eric Deggans talks with Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson about a dust-up he had at the TV Critics Association winter press tour in L.A., when he tried to talk with a show executive about CBS’s upcoming TV series “Rush Hour,” based on the popular film franchise. Deggans discusses diversity in the upcoming season of TV.
