Bring a Big Appetite for Stage 13’s 'Family Style'
Pull up a chair and make sure your table manners are on point, because you’re about to get a taste of Asian food and pop culture that will definitely make you hungry! “Family Style” is a new, unscripted food and travel-themed show from Stage 13, the award-winning content studio that is part of Warner Bros. Digital Networks. This tasty new dish will premiere Monday, May 13 with two episodes on www.Stage13.com, YouTube channel and on Facebook Watch during Asian Pacific American Heritage month.
The series stars the “Foodie Fam” – eight talented friends bonded by their expert knowledge and passion for culture, cuisine and sharing family moments around the table. The cast includes Stacy Fan (contributing Editor at Harper’s Bazaar, China and founder of the “Eurasian Vogue” blog); Lana McKissack (actress/singer/producer, “Shameless,” “Criminal Minds,” “Transformers: Titans Return”); Gilbert Galon (actor/comedian), Amanda Suk (“The Runaways”), Arvin Lee (Korean-American actor/filmmaker/musician), Anthony Ma (Taiwanese-American actor/writer/filmmaker; “Dear White People,” “NCIS: Los Angeles”); Oates Wu (Chinese writer/director) and Sujata Day (actress/model/screenwriter, “Insecure”).
“There are a lot of food shows, but most are centered around ‘experts’ educating the audience,” said Executive Producer Philip W. Chung. “But I've learned the most interesting things about food and culture come from simply sharing stories with friends while enjoying a great meal. I wanted to see a show with that vibe–where the audience felt like a member of our Foodie Fam and could share in these food adventures together.”
Each week, the cast will be joined by a special (aka famous) guest. Season one will feature appearances from “The Good Doctor” star Daniel Dae Kim, “Fresh off the Boat” actor Hudson Yang and his father CNN journalist Jeff Yang, “Crazy Rich Asians” and “Shadowhunters” actor Harry Shum Jr. and “Crazy Rich Asians” director Jon M. Chu, and highlight experiences at some of the best spots for Asian cuisine.
So, bring your appetite for “Family Style,” premiering Monday, May 13 on Stage 13’s site and YouTube channel and on Facebook Watch.
