Jewish and Normal? Oy!

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/television/article/jewish_and_normal_oy_20010907

NBC's hit "Will & Grace," which is up for 12 Emmys this month, is one of the first network shows to feature an appealing homosexual main character. But the sitcom -- which revolves around gay attorney Will and his best gal pal Grace -- is a first for another reason: its novel depiction of a young Jewish woman. Grace Adler, played by Jewish actress Debra Messing, is a gorgeous, kooky interior designer who is neither pushy nor a shopaholic. Forget pathetic Melissa from "thirtysomething" or obnoxious Vicki from "Suddenly Susan."
