ena Waithe is a successful writer and producer who has filmed a pilot for a new series called Twenties. Lena Waithe’s Twenties tells the story of three young black women, one of whom is queer. Lena Waithe herself is young, black, and queer. INCREDIBLY SURPRISING NEWS THAT DOESN’T PROVE THAT THE LACK OF ON-SCREEN DIVERSITY IS THE RESULT OF CONSCIOUS, BIASED DECISIONS AND WON’T MAKE YOU WANT TO PLACE YOUR HEAD ON YOUR DESK: Lena Waithe is having difficultly convincing studios to pick up her project.

Martin Short was the host of Saturday Night Live this weekend, and it was an enjoyable episode. His sketch comedy chops made him seem less like a host and more like a bonus cast member.
