The Real O'Neals Avoids Controversy
The new comedy series The Real O'Neals deals with a catholic family that is confronted with the fact that the son is homosexual. While this aspect of the plot itself did not spark a big shitstorm among US catholics, a casting detail did provoke strong protest. The show is based on an idea by Dan Savage who is an activist for LGBT rights and who regularly attacks conservatives from all parties and even takes on other LGBT representatives.
Now it looks like ABC has bowed down before the critics and changed the show's concept to the point where Savage's original biting comedy can rarely be seen. Instead, the more common "crazy family" recipe of other family sitcoms has been implemented. Savage has been demoted to the rank of an executive producer which is code for "people that are somewhat involved in the production but don't have much to say". It was also emphasized multiple times that the series will be pro-belief in order to calm down the target audience, telling it that homosexuality is part of the story but will not be used as an instrument to attack conservative values and the catholic church (which is believed to be at the heart of the protests against Savage).
The series starts in the US in March 2016.
