Remy Hii questions lack of diversity on Wonderland
Better Man star tweets about the anglo cast on Wonderland but gets a curt reminder from FremantleMedia.
He questioned the show’s lack of diversity.
But that prompted a response from FremantleMedia’s Head of Communications Steve Murphy, subtly reminding him about loyalties.
@TVWEEKmag Thoughts so far: Wonderland is about how ten people living in Bondi have got by without befriending 1 person of non-anglo descent

@RemyHii Wonderland is made by same company who makes Neighbours and Better Man.

Wonderland is also on the same networks as Neighbours, in which Hii has been appearing in a guest role.
He isn’t the first to question the predominantly white cast of the new show after Jay Laga’aia also took to Twitter.
Dear Channel 10, your new Drama, Wonderland seems to only have white people in it! Are there any ethnics, that aren’t cabbies in your show?

@JayLagaaia If I wanted to see a show about a group of straight white people living together, I still have my ‘Friends’ DVDs.
