At first glance, Chuck Lorre’s new series, Bob Hearts Abishola, would seem to be a cute romantic comedy. (The “Hearts” in the show title is a dead giveaway, right?) And Lorre admits that, yes, in some respects, it’s exactly that. But he told us that, once you get beyond the romantic aspects of the series, it’s really about something much deeper and more exciting, and it was that timely theme which made him want to create the show.
