Actress, comedian, and recent Golden Globes winner Awkwafina will be debuting her new Comedy Central series on January 22nd:
“Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens” makes its debut Jan. 22. The series, inspired by her real-life upbringing in New York, also stars BD Wong (“Mr. Robot”) and Lori Tan Chinn (“Orange Is the New Black”) as characters based on the father and grandmother of the actress.
Comedy Central’s press release describes the show as follows:
“… half-hour scripted comedy inspired by her real-life growing up in Queens, NY. Raised by her Dad (BD Wong) and Grandma (Lori Tan Chinn) alongside her cousin (Bowen Yang), Nora Lin leans on her family as she navigates life and young adulthood in outer borough-NYC.”
The first season will be comprised of 10 episodes, and has already been renewed before its debut for a Season 2. I’m looking forward to checking the sitcom out, and I hope it’s as funny as ‘Kim’s Convenience.’
