i have to say – i’m soooo grateful for this article – everything i hoped for and more when i started creating the series. there are a lot of things i love about the renaissance in discussion about clarissa (first of all – that it mattered!) second that things i consciously planned for received the response i hoped for and third that many things i took for granted that were unsaid (like the stuff about her parents, her clothes, her friendship, her brother) shined through over time as assumptions that girls (and guys) that grew up with the show came to accept, claim and assume as part of their life and view.

you would not believe how retrenched the networks are in a new version of the old blinders – they still don’t see how they can appeal to both genders – as people – and they are still determinedly stereotyping girls and boys more than ever. but thanks so much for this. it’s clean clear writing and i’m thankful for it. i can’t wait to see what you guys think of the clarissa novel coming out soon! get updates at mitchellkriegman.com thanks! mitchell kriegman (creator of ceia) #thingsicantexplain #clarissanovel

Looking back, the premiere of Clarissa Explains It All might mark our style change from Limited Too to Pac Sun. That was only the beginning.
