Although 1st season structurally develops the same story of the original movie, in the series adaptation there are some considerable changes on the dramatic arc of characters Coco Conners, Troy Fairbanks and Dean Fairbanks (Troy's father). In the series Coco is well aware about the social issues in the campus and accepts her race and color, often choosing sides that better fits her personal interests, but in the movie she not only self neglect her race and color, acting as a "white chick" like her pals use to say, but also avoids relationships with others of the same color.
