Did You Know?
Early in the first season, the industry website deadline.com reported that there had been a hair and makeup test performed on the set in advance of shooting in which a white stuntwoman was made up in blackface (a process known as "painting down") to prepare her to double for a black guest actress. Painting down stuntpeople is against SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) rules; a SAG representative said that the situation was "presumptively improper... in other words: the practice of 'painting down' is unacceptable anywhere and particularly so in a production center like New York City with so many qualified stuntwomen of color trained for this type of work." When Deadline called this issue to Warner Brothers' attention, WB at first tried to minimize its importance but later released this statement: "A mistake was made this week in casting a stunt woman for a guest star in a particular scene on the show. The situation has been rectified, and we regret the error."
