anonymous asked:

Do you know any dramas/movies/shows where the protagonist(s) is East Asian?

Hi! Since you’ve made emphasis on the protagonist, I’m only listing films/shows where the narrative is told/shown mainly from the POV of East Asian character (i.e., save for couple of exceptions, not listing ensemble shows/films like TWD or Humans for example) -

Films:

Shows:

  • Fresh off the Boat
  • Single by 30 [watch HERE | Original pilot]
  • Elementary
  • Dr. Ken - I know that it wasn’t received that well by the community but one thing I definitely respect a lot about this show is that they didn’t erase Suzy Nakamura’s ethnicity and that the Park family is canonically multiethnic - which they addressed in their Thanksgiving episode in season one. It’s quite rare to see that on screen. 
  • Andi Mack - an Disney Channel television series set to premiere on April 7, 2017. First episode is on demand here.
  • Make It Pop - Canadian–American musical teen sitcom. I haven’t seen it, but from what I’ve seen they have a multiethnic Asian cast – they have actors of Chinese, Korean, Filipinx, Vietnamese descent. Again, that’s very rare.
  • Blood and Water - Canadian detective drama centering around Chinese Diaspora [read more here]
  • The Family Law - Australian comedy series centering around Chinese family [read more here]
  • Kim’s Convenience  - Canadian sitcom centering around Korean family [read more here]
  • Second Jen - Canadian sitcom about two second-generation millennial women growing up with immigrant families. Watch HERE [read more here]
  • Ronny Chieng: International Student - upcoming Australian comedy series. Trailer
  • Selfie  (sadly, cancelled)
  • One Child - three part BBC miniseries
  • Maximum Choppage - Australian six part comedy (1 season).  Trailer
  • Into the Badland - ensemble show 
  • Agents of Shield - ensemble show
  • Marco Polo - ensemble show and technically, this one has a white protagonist, but (from those episodes I’ve watched) it seems that more emphasis of the narrative is on the Asian characters. 
  • Highland - upcoming show starring Margaret Cho (not yet released)

Obviously this is not a full list, just the ones off the top of my head at the moment. Will update it, if I remember some more.
