“How to Get Away with Murder” got no “pushback” over the graphic gay and straight sex scenes
“I knew I wanted to push the envelope, especially with the gay sex,” creator Pete Nowalk tells E! “And to me, writing the gay characterization and writing some real gay sex into a network show is to right the wrong of all of the straight sex that you see on TV. Because I didn't see that growing up, and I feel like the more people get used to two men kissing, the less weird it will be for people. I just feel like it's a lack of vision that you don't see it on TV, but ABC has never had a note about any of the weird stuff in the show, so I'm gonna keep it going.” PLUS: Season 1 has been mapped out, and why the cast looks so familiar?
