Comedian Aziz Ansari's new Netflix show "Master of None" opens with a scene involving the Plan B pill after a one date hook-up and many jokes about Uber. It centers on an Indian-American actor trying to make it on screen.

NPR's Eric Deggans tells Here & Now's Indira Lakshmanan that the show is a perfect follow to the New York sitcoms of the '90s - think "Friends" and "Seinfeld" - that featured almost no people of color.
