KUALA LUMPUR, 6 April 2016 – Meet the Huangs, TV’s funniest new family with the biggest American dream have moved to iflix. Catch every hilarious moment with the Huangs as they try to assimilate into suburban America, with all 13-episodes of the first season of Fresh Off The Boat now available on iflix Malaysia.
Fresh Off The Boat
It’s 1995 and 12-year-old hip hop-loving Eddie has just moved with his family from Chinatown in Washington D.C. to suburban Orlando, Florida. They quickly discover things are very different there. Orlando doesn’t even have a Chinatown… unless you count the Huang house.
Eddie’s dad, Louis has dragged the family to the ‘burbs to pursue his version of the American dream, opening Cattleman’s Ranch Steakhouse, a struggling western-themed restaurant. Eddie’s mom, Jessica has agreed to the move, but she finds Orlando a strange place – from the rollerblading stay-at-home moms, to the hospital-like grocery stores, and the fact that the humidity has ruined her hair.
Meanwhile, Eddie is just trying to figure out his place in this new world, which is proving extremely difficult. Like one of his idols, The Notorious B.I.G, Eddie’s a guy with mad dreams – first, get a seat at the table. Second, meet Shaq. Third, change the game (possibly with the help of Shaq). It’s a classic immigrant story, seen through the eyes of a first-generation Asian American kid.
Inspired by the memoirs of celebrity chef Eddie Huang, Fresh Off The Boat stars Randall Park as Louis, Constance Wu as Jessica, Hudson Yang as Eddie, Forrest Wheeler as Emery and Ian Chen as Evan. Eddie Huang provides the voice-over narration.
