Morning Brew – Alanis Morissette and Orla Brady are lovers in “The Price of Desire”


Good morning! Happy Friday!

First, some bad news in TV cancellations. We’re losing lesbian characters with the axing of Grandfathered, Agent Carter and The Family. The lesbian-straight dude buddy TV series from Ed Weeks and Hannah McKay was passed on by ABC as well. In better news, The Catch has been renewed, so more of Margot.
