About ‘I’m Asian American and…’

Myx TV, the only English-language multicultural Asian American entertainment network in the United States, premiered its newest original series, “I’m Asian American and…” on April 23, 2014 at 8/7 central. Use the hashtag #IAAA on Twitter and let us know how you like this show!

“I’m Asian American and…” is the first documentary series on American television to focus on the diverse Asian American diaspora, featuring unique and sometimes controversial individuals who do not fit the “model minority” stereotype of the United States’ fastest growing minority group.

The docu-series is shot in and around Los Angeles and consists of 10 episodes. Each episode revolves around real people showing viewers the reality of their lives, from a lawyer who fights human trafficking to a living doll; a dog nanny, a person who does not identify as male or female, a big-time radio DJ, a triplet whose siblings have autism, and many more. From tongue-in-cheek to somber and heartbreaking, each episode of “I’m Asian American and…” will delve into a range of little explored human behaviors and experiences.

“We see ‘I’m Asian American and…’ as a perfect choice for our first original docu-series,” said Miguel Santos, General Manager, Myx TV. “It’s entertaining, provocative, and it challenges every stereotype about Asian Americans while portraying the lives of a diverse group of individuals who are interesting in ways that go way beyond ethnicity.”

“I’m Asian American and…” is produced by Thirsty Tiger Television and Partners and Executive Producers Valerie Chow and Stephen Goetsch. Chow and Goetsch are producers of such cable favorites as “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant” (TLC) and the critically acclaimed “The Chef Jeff Project” (The Food Network).

“’I’m Asian American and…’ is not just an Asian American show, it’s an awesome show that millennials, regardless of ethnicity, will love,” said Executive Producers Valerie Chow and Stephen Goetsch. “This is not your mama’s boring oppressed-Asians documentary. On every episode of ‘I’m Asian American and…’ we profile Asian Americans in a fun, tongue-in-cheek way that will make you re-think the stereotypes and pre-conceived notions about the Asian American experience.”

Executive producers for Thirsty Tiger Television are Valerie Chow and Stephen Goetsch. For Myx TV, executive producer and executive in charge of production is Miguel Santos.

The series will be available in all of Myx TV’s platforms, which includes over 12 million households on cable and satellite providers such as Comcast, Time Warner, Cox and DIRECTV; VOD online via www.myx.tv; and on OTT platforms Roku, Samsung Smart TV and Blu-Ray, and Sony Bravia and Blu-Ray. Myx TV is distributed by International Media Distribution, which is owned by NBC Universal.
