Never Have I Ever

I finished watching Never Have I Ever a few days ago, and I highly recommend it! The show is produced by Mindy Kaling and is about an Indian teenage girl, Devi, growing up in Sherman Oaks, CA. Devi is determined to lose her virginity to Paxton, a popular jock on the swim team. He is absolutely perfect with his chiseled abs and all that, and Devi is completely obsessed with him. Together with her two best friends, Eleanor and Fabiola, the girls explore the ups and downs of high school.

It might sound like a typical teenage drama such as the O.C. or One Tree Hill, but Never Have I Ever does a great job of representing minorities. The writers also highlighted the cultural differences between Devi and her other classmates while also eliminating Indian stereotypes. Mindy Kaling gave Indians a promotion from being the side-kick to starring in the lead role. I hope we see more of that.
