New 90210 Aims for an Accurate Student Demographic

The Jewish Daily Forward, Posted: Aug 22, 2008

LOS ANGELES -- Critics of the show "Beverly Hills, 90210" said it did not accurately reflect the makeup of the actual Beverly Hills High School, reports The Jewish Daily Forward. At the time of the show the student body was over half Jewish including Iranian Jews. When the remake debuts Sept. 2 on Fox, the cast will include an Iranian and a half-Jewish character. One of the Jewish characters on the original show, Andrea Zuckerman, was played by Gabrielle Carteris a Jewish actress. Carteris appeared on the set wearing a Star of David around her neck and was told by a Jewish executive that it wouldn't be palatable for Middle America, The Jewish Daily Forward reports. Carteris refused to remove it unless the other actors removed their crosses, resulting in a ban on all religious jewelry.
