I'm a few days late with this (again, I'm lazy, but don't worry, I will flog myself as I should), but I got to screen the first 3 episodes of the series and I think there will be a lot of people that will enjoy this. New episodes will be put out every Thursday and the Web premiere just went online a few days ago.
Because You Wanted To Know More (From The Site)
"Ni hao, kumusta, and welcome to the official site of 2 Girls | 1 Asian! Kaela and Kelly here-- the creators/producers/Asians of this webseries.
After meeting in college, we bonded over theater collaborations, our romantic lives (or lack thereof), and most importantly, television. We were drawn to entertainers who manage to break stereotypes with humor and objectivity; we loved female-driven comedy, but didn’t often see ourselves reflected in the entertainment we're offered.
As an answer to that, we created 2 Girls | 1 Asian, which follows Caela and Kelliye, two half-Asian actresses living together in Brooklyn. Our first season follows the girls through breakups, career trials, apartment troubles, and even fissions within their friendship, but ultimately it's the story of two girls who value each other more than they value the mistakes the other makes. Our perspective on race in America gives us a unique filter through which to view the "single girl in the big city" narrative, so our episodes actively work to subvert Asian American stereotypes we're tired of seeing. Plus, there’s a musical episode! We’re looking forward to sharing our independent production online June 5, 2014.
We like: diversity in entertainment, feminism, gossip, anything the CW Network produces
We don’t like: people who don’t eat all the time like we do.
We love: eating, The Mindy Project, romantic comedies, whiskey"
