Life Lesson #63: Things I Know To Be True

“I Need White People Lunch!” Fresh Off the Boat coming to ABC this fall

ABC has picked up Fresh Off the Boat, based on Eddie Huang‘s memoir about being part of a Chinese immigrant family trying to make it in 1990s Orlando. Starring Randall Park, Constance Wu, Hudson Yang, Forrest Wheeler, and Ian Chen

Anyhow, it looks promising. My only gripe is the accents…they should’ve called on Russell Peters for some help on that end.

PS. Super glad that the treatment of the series title does not contain any ‘Asian’ chop suey-esque font. Thank you ceative director and designers for thinking outside the box!

Females play video games too. Why would you want to disregard this whole other demographic? But glad that changes are being made.

Lynch has taken a personal stance by providing mentorship to rising women. But what is needed, Lynch says, is a broader cultural shift. “It’s important for women to get on television,” she said at an industry panel this month. “Because that is the largest audience we have.” It is a means to a necessary end, and she’s all for it — just so long as she doesn’t have to do it herself.
