‘Fosters’ Spinoff Exec Producer Praises Darren Criss for No Longer Playing Gay Characters
Darren Criss may have been the talk of the weekend following his Golden Globes win, but at Monday’s “Good Trouble” screening, it was his support of Lgbtq acting roles that had his name on everyone’s lips.

Recently, the “Assassination of Gianni Versace” actor told Bustle that he no longer felt comfortable taking on queer roles in film and television. As a straight actor, Criss said he wanted to make sure that he wouldn’t be taking away roles from gay actors — a statement that “Good Trouble” executive producer Bradley Bredeweg took to heart.

“I love it! I think it’s very bold and outspoken, and I love that he made that statement,” Bredeweg told Variety during the Freeform series’ red carpet at the Los Angeles Lgbt Center in Hollywood. “Hopefully one day we don’t have to make those statements, that we’re just in a world in

‘Good Trouble’ Review: ‘The Fosters’ Socially-Aware Spinoff Gives Realistic Charm To Adulting
Spoiler Alert: This article contains details from the premiere episode of Good Trouble. Gone are the days of the enjoyably schmaltzy and sugar-coated melodramatic coming-of-age series about young adulthood (I love me some Dawson’s Creek) and welcome to a new era of millennial-driven shows that are inclusive and tackle issues that don’t play out like “lesson of the week” but rather give us a fresh — and much-needed — perspective of the modern world we live in today (Bi-sexuality! Race relations! Women in the workplace!). With Freeform’s Good Trouble, a spin-off of The Fosters, we see all of this and it’s done in a way that isn’t pandering or forced. Instead, it’s appropriate with heartfelt charm and feels like it didn’t come from an older, uninformed TV exec that said: “this is how kids talk, right?”

Now, seven months after “The Fosters” came to an end, its spinoff series “Good Trouble” sets out to further explore such themes, but in a new setting and with a new ensemble.

“When you leave home, you go out in the world and you create your chosen family of friends and people that you work with, and that’s what this show is about,” executive producer Joanna Johnson tells Variety. “It’s still a family show, but it’s the family you choose to surround you and support you.”
