Crazy Rich Asians was a huge success, so it is no surprise there’s a show in works inspired by the movie. From Crazy Rich Asians to Lazy Rich Asians, a comedy that will be worked on by the same writer who wrote the Rick and Morty Pickle Rick episode. Jessica Gao is no stranger on the scene having bagged the best animated program Emmy recently.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jessica Gao will be writing and producing the show for ABC.
The series will be centered around main character Janet Zhao, who loses her wealthy grams and is left with a hefty fortune. Well that’s great no? The thing is, Janet is left as the sole beneficiary of her grandma’s will, which in turn makes her the unwilling new matriarch of the family. Janet will need to learn how to set healthy boundaries with her overbearing family.
I’m pretty sure we all can relate to poor Janet when it comes to handling family, as for the fortune..
So we just got to wait for this comedy to be ready, as management for Gao has indeed confirmed the series to a few sites when asked. However a definite name for the show has yet to be confirmed. With Crazy Rich Asians being a huge success worldwide, without a doubt ABC is interested on the proposal and is eager on riding the success of big screen adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s bestselling novel – Crazy Rich Asian.
