The Good Doctor and Jane the Virgin are among the shows that added #MeToo-themed storylines
The Good Doctor creator David Shore says the ABC drama will continue tackling sexual harassment after incorporating the issue in a storyline this season. “The challenges and the difficulties and the frustrations — we wanted to embrace it and we wanted it to carry forward,” Shore says. “We didn’t want it to be something that happens and then it’s just forgotten about. We wanted it to play out over a few episodes. We didn’t want it to be what the show is completely all about, but we wanted to deal with it honestly, and that means for more than just a moment. This is something that carries on and that people live with.” For Jane the Virgin, the #MeToo movement prompted the show to revisit a consensual affair Jane had with a graduate school adviser years earlier. Now, a mature Jane looked back at the affair with more scrutiny, especially with regard to its power dynamics.
