This week, the CW’s breakout hit “Jane the Virgin” was honored with a Peabody award. The comedy-drama series is about a religious young woman, Jane, who is a virgin but discovers she’s pregnant after a mix-up at the gynecologist’s office.

NPR TV Critic Eric Deggans joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson to discuss changing demographics and TV executives’ efforts to attract Latino audiences.
