Although loved by many, the 25-year-old sitcom Friends has been under constant criticism for its all-white cast - considering it's set in the melting pot that is New York City. However, the show's co-creator Marta Kauffman has addressed the lack of diversity in a recently interview at the virtual ATX Television Festival.

"I wish I knew then what I know today. I would have made very different decisions," she said. "We’ve always encouraged people of diversity in our company, but I didn’t do enough. Now all I can think about is what can I do, what can I do differently. How can I run my show in a new way? That’s something I wish I knew when I started showrunning but all the way up through last year."
