That’s what film composer/self-proclaimed geek George Shaw and filmmaker Jeffrey Gee Chin are looking to further explore. As a passion project, they self-funded a first episode of this idea, now they’re hoping to get some crowdfunding support to produce the next episode, “The Empire’s New Groove.” Can you help make their “geekdom” a reality? They only have 2 more days left! A donation of $1 or more will enter you in a raffle to win an original sketch of Psylocke by Marvel/DC artist Jim Lee. A donation of $10 or more will enter you in a raffle to win an autographed Stan Lee Funko Pop figure!
Whoa, just realized this year marks my 10 year anniversary with Kollaboration! The first time I ever attended a Kollaboration was the Kollaboration All Stars show on July 23rd, 2005! Time flies. Anyway, tomorrow night, Kollaboration Star is going down and the lineup looks pretty solid!
So be prepared, y’all. Be prepared. ABC’s new show Dr. Ken is about to prescribe you some good ol’ hearty laughter. The show stars real life doctor turned actor/comedian Ken Jeong, Suzy Nakamura, Krista Marie Yu, Albert Tsai, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Jonathan Slavin, Kate Simses, and Dave Foley. This show is gonna be legit or as Ken would say, “on fleek!” And trust me, I know. I’ve been going to the live tapings and laughing my ass off every time.
As an avid supporter of Asian Americans in media for over a decade, I’m THRILLED about this time we’re living in with Dr. Ken, Fresh Off the Boat, and ‘All the Asians on TV’ this Fall. So when I was invited to visit the set of Dr. Ken a few weeks ago, it was pretty awesome to hear Ken’s heart and vision for the show along with the entire cast acknowledging the show’s significance for the Asian American community and their 100% effort to make this show the best show it can be. Michael Aushenker of the Palisadian-Post has a nice write up with quotes from our set visit: ‘Ken Jeong: Man on a Wire.’
This was a fun day. Thank you, ‘Dr Ken,’ ABC, and Sony!
If you’re in LA, they actually still have half a season left of tapings and YOU can be part of the live audience! Free tickets are available on tvtickets.com. For the rest of you, tune in or set your DVR! I can’t wait for you guys to watch this show!
Dr. Ken premieres next Friday, October 2nd at 8:30/7:30c on ABC.
