Female and minority writers are still underrepresented in television, according to the statistics last Wednesday by the Writers Guild of America.
In the 2009 Hollywood Writers Report, the guild shows that women's employment in TV has remained at 28 percent from 2005 to 2007 while minority groups' share of employment declined 10 percent to 9 percent.
Among minorities, Asian TV writers' employment increased the most (from 24 people to 54) and African-American writers took the biggest hit (from 168 to 143).
