Exclusive Interview: Sanjay Shah (Screenwriter/Consulting Producer, "Fresh Off the Boat")

COLOR has covered Fresh Off the Boat extensively when it comes to the episodes and characters, including an interview with Kid Eddie himself, Hudson Yang. But now we’re going behind the scenes with Sanjay Shah, one of the screenwriters for Fresh Off the Boat.

I was happy to ask interview Shah via email about working on the show, what fans can expect from upcoming episodes, and how he feels about the public embracing the show. 

Exclusive Interview: Eric Haywood (Screenwriter, "Empire")

Empire is on the tongues of everyone who watches TV nowadays. the Fox series has made waves every week since its premiere, and the buzz has only gotten bigger.

I was very excited to speak with one of Empire‘s screenwriters, Eric Haywood. We discussed the state of TV diversity, what fans can expect from the rest of the season, and the 411 on the one issue Empire fans have with the show—that it’s on the same night as black-ish.

"The Legend of Korra" Korrasami Poster To Help LGBTQ Suicide Prevention

I used to be a big Legend of Korra watcher, but I fell off after the first season and didn’t think about returning back to it. Apparently, I missed a lot, since Korra is now with Asami, who was at one point dating-not-dating Mako. who had dated Korra. Don’t believe Korra is with Asami for real? The series’ creators have stated that Korrasami is now canon.

People Show Support for Domestic Abuse Victim Nan-Hui Jo with #StandWithNanHui and #WeSurvived

Twitter talk has made people alert about the plight of Nan-Hui Jo . Jo, a native South Korean who immigrated to the U.S., had fled the U.S. with her daughter back to Korea in 2009 to find shelter from her father’s daughter, Iraq war vet Jesse Charlton. But, as Al-Jazeera states, Charlton filed child abduction charges against her, meaning that now, her daughter resides with him while Jo is in jail. Further complicating the case is that Jo is undocumented, giving her a much higher percentage at being deported.

"Sleepy Hollow": Fox Encourages You to Make Memes Ridiculing Katrina and Henry's Deaths

People have been worried about if Sleepy Hollow is coming back. Even I’ve been a little affected despite my belief that the show has a good chance at coming back. The new Fox pilot Frankenstein was making me a little concerned, since there are elements to the story that’s very similar to Sleepy Hollow‘s crazy sci-fi nonsense.

But there was one thing I saw yesterday that made me completely secure in Sleepy Hollow‘s future once again. That thing was seeing the official Fox Sleepy Hollow page invite people to make fun of Katrina and Henry’s deaths.

Exclusive Interview: Hudson Yang ("Fresh Off the Boat")

Fresh Off the Boat has been rightly lauded for bringing an Asian-American family back to television, but another reason it’s become a fan favorite is because of the talent showcased, including the show’s breakout star, Hudson Yang.

Yang plays a young Eddie Huang (who we know of today as famous chef/ Baouhaus restaurateur Eddie Huang). Yang’s Eddie (who I’ve called “Kid Eddie” in my Fresh Off the Boat recaps) is still trying to find his place in the world, and his current method of figuring out who he is includes tons of rap music, hip-hop shirts, and a lot of trial and error.

I’m excited to share my interview with Yang (mediated through email by his father Jeff Yang, Wall Street Journal columnist and an SVP/head of multicultural insights at The Futures Company). In the interview, Yang talks about catching the acting bug, working with his TV family, and what he hopes audiences learn from the show. Fresh Off the Boat airs every Tuesday at 8/7c on ABC.
