ABC Schedules FRESH OFF THE BOAT Series Premiere

December 10, 2014 by  

ABC is trying another comedy Tuesdays at 8 PM: FRESH OFF THE BOAT.

Check out what ABC has to say about the new series and its time slot…

“ABC announced the premiere date today for new half hour comedy “Fresh Off the Boat.”

Inspired by Eddie Huang’s best-selling memoir by the same name, “Fresh Off the Boat” will be sampled twice in ABC’s Wednesday night comedy block on WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 4 at both 8:30 and 9:31 p.m., followed by its time slot premiere on TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 10 (8:00-8:30 p.m., ET).

It’s 1995 and 11-year-old hip-hop loving Eddie Huang (Hudson Yang) has just moved with his family from Chinatown in Washington D.C. to suburban Orlando. They quickly discover things are very different there.  Orlando doesn’t even have a Chinatown — unless you count the Huang house. Eddie’s dad, Louis (Randall Park), has dragged the family to the ‘burbs to pursue his version of the American dream, opening Cattleman’s Ranch Steakhouse, a struggling western-themed restaurant. Louis thinks that the best way to get customers in the door is to hire a white host to greet them and make them feel comfortable. Eddie’s mom, Jessica (Constance Wu), has agreed to the move, but she finds Orlando a strange place — from the rollerblading stay-at-home moms, to the hospital-like grocery stores, to the fact that the humidity has ruined her hair.

Inspired by a true story, “Fresh Off the Boat” stars Randall Park as Louis, Constance Wu as Jessica, Hudson Yang as Eddie, Forrest Wheeler as Emery and Ian Chen as Evan. Eddie Huang provides the voice over narration.

“Fresh Off the Boat” was written by Nahnatchka Khan, who also serves as executive producer. Jake Kasdan and Melvin Mar are executive producers, and Eddie Huang is producer. The series is produced by 20th Century Fox Television.
