Fresh Off the Boat, now in its fifth season, has broken cultural barriers as the first sitcom with an all–Asian-American lead cast since Margaret Cho's All-American Girl nearly 25 years ago. Inspired by restaurateur Eddie Huang's 2013 memoir, the ABC comedy follows the Taiwanese Huang family — including tough, penny-pinching matriarch Jessica (Constance Wu), steakhouse owner and affable dad Louis (Randall Park), their three boys (Hudson Yang, Forrest Wheeler, Ian Chen) and grandmother (Lucille Soong) — in Orlando in the '90s. Since the show premiered in 2015, Wu has become a film star thanks to Crazy Rich Asians and Park has become a comedy staple; and big-name comedian Ali Wong was a writer on the show for two seasons The Paley Center's An Evening with Fresh Off the Boat features a screening and discussion with actors Park and Wu as well as executive producer Nahnatchka Khan.
