EATING IT

The Asian-American experience is often misunderstood in the U.S, because it’s rarely depicted in mainstream entertainment. Asian characters are usually portrayed as one-dimensional, especially in comedy: nerd, kung-fu master, background extra. This show is meant to dissolve these preconceptions and provide an intimate, nuanced (and funny!) look into what it’s like being an Asian-American in a way that appeals not only to other Asian-Americans, but also to anyone who has felt those same pressures, desires, and conflicts.
