There’s been a lot of press about Fresh Off the Boat, the mid-season replacement scheduled to debut on a yet to be announced date on ABC.
But just as exciting and a lot closer on the horizon is Selfie, a modern day take on My Fair Lady starring John Cho and Karen Gillan Tuesday’s this fall on ABC.
After all, when’s the last time we’ve seen a network TV show starring an Asian American man in a lead role?
Daniel Dae Kim has had supporting roles on Lost and Hawaii Five-O. Ditto for Kal Penn in House and Masi Oka and James Kyson Lee in Heroes.
Asian American men have also been part of ensemble casts such as Darren Criss in Glee and Ken Jeong in Community.
Here’s just a glimpse of what we can expect in Selfie in this promo now running on ABC.
