Originally posted 12/13/2013 12:30PM

Saturday Night Live plans to add one or two black female performers to its cast as soon as January.

A representative for the NBC sketch-comedy show on Thursday confirmed reports it's answering complaints about its lack of diversity by staging showcases to choose at least one black female cast member and to hire her within weeks.

In recent weeks, the show has seen two-dozen candidates in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York.
