Awkwafina Is Getting Her Own Show

2018 was the year for Awkwafina after starring in Crazy Rich Asians and Ocean’s 8. She is still my favorite part about Crazy Rich Asians and I tell everyone that. Now, the young Asian-American actress is getting her own show on Comedy Central in which she’ll star in, write for, and produce. The 10-episode scripted series is a play on her own life – a 20 something living in Queens with her family.

“I’ve been watching Comedy Central since I was old enough to hold a remote, and so many of their shows have defined who I am today,” said Awkwafina about the show. “I am so honored to be given their platform to tell the story of an Asian American girl against the backdrop of the city I was raised.”

No premiere date has been slated yet for the series, but we can’t wait to hear more!
