Fresh Off The Boat Is The First Sitcom In 20 Years To Feature An Asian-American Family! See The HIGHlarious Trailer HERE!

| Filed under: TV NewsInspiration

Hooray for diversity!

For the first time since Margaret Cho's show was canceled in 1994, Asian-Americans will finally have representation on a network TV sitcom.

Fresh Off the Boat is an autobiographical comedy about the boyhood adventures of celebrity chef Eddie Huang. Set in the '90s, the ABC show features a Taiwanese-American family that leaves Washington D.C. to open up a steakhouse in the far more homogeneous city of Orlando, Florida.

Hashtag culture shock!

The trailer for the show is friggin' HIGHarious — ch-ch-check it out (above)!

Ha! It even has Randall Park from Veep! We love that dude!

ABC hasn't unveiled a Fresh Off the Boat's premiere date yet, but we sincerely hope a show this diverse finds success!

    Thanks so much Perez for promoting a show that features asians! A little corny 2 and a half humor at times, but the mom is hilarious!

    This show looks weird. Why is the hot Chinese girl married to a ugly asian guy? All the asian girls I know have white fever.

    Re: WHITE GUY

    lmao. insecure much? I think they both are attractive and I will be watching this show. Putting someone down doesn't make you more attractive. this is probably why white girls aren't attracted to boys like you, you closed-minded insecure dweeb.

    Very offensive, not every Asian will embrace the tittle especially when F.O.B is a racial slur.
