NBC's Rise Accused Of 'Straight-Washing' Character Based On Gay Drama Teacher!

no title

Hollywood fails us once again…

In the new NBC musical theater show Rise, Josh Radnor plays drama teacher Lou Mazzuchelli, based on real-life educator Lou Volpe.

The only problem? Radnor's character is a straight family man, while Volpe came out as gay later in life.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, executive producer Jason Katims explained at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour on Tuesday:

"I hope and believe that we carry a lot of [Lou's] spirit into the show. We took that as inspiration. I felt like I needed to make it my own story. I didn't want to shy away from sexual orientation and gender… With Lou's family, there's a lot of reimagination — not just if he's gay or straight, but the family structure. … It was important to honor the source material, but to also make it my own so we'd be able to lean into it."

Not surprisingly, when word broke out, Twitter users were pissed, and accused the show of "straight-washing."

A special preview for the new series — based off Michael Sokolove's 2014 book Drama High: The Incredible True Story of a Brilliant Teacher, a Struggling Town, and the Magic of Theater — will air Tuesday, March 13.

This is AH-Mazing!

We've been huge Rachael Yamagata fans for years, so we're LOVING this cool collab from her! On Tuesday, the singer released the music video for her latest single Let Me Be Your Girl… and the visual stars none other than Allison Janney as a kooky clown dancing around a loft!

SUPER awesome, right?!

Well, we aren't the only ones who think so, because Miz Yamagata dished to Entertainment Weekly:

"In my heart of hearts I never thought it would actually happen."

But, that's not all that happened! The songstress also enlisted How I Met Your Mother's Josh Radnor to direct the creative clip!

It turns out, the musician asked the sitcom alum — who's actually a longtime friend — to work with her through an email, saying that they "might" be teaming up with the Mom star.

This sold Josh on the idea, because he admitted he's a HUGE fan of Miz Janney's, saying:

According to reports, Mercy Street will be set in Virginia during the Civil War and it's based on real memoirs from hospital workers from the era. It will follow the characters, Mary Phinney, played by Winstead, and Emma Green, played by first timer Hannah James, who work together at a Union Army Hospital, Mansion Hospital.

Of course these two women have very different moral viewpoints — otherwise there'd be no DRAMA, DUH — as Mary is an abolitionist and Emma is a good ol' confederate girl.

Oh! It just so happens that
