1 hour ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Master of None” has been a boon for showcasing diversity with its inclusive casting and storylines that take a look at people who don’t always get screen time.

It’s currently only one of a handful of TV series that can boast Asian-American creators.
