Eddie Huang On Success of ‘Fresh Off the Boat’

Chef, author and host of Vice’s “Huang’s World,” Eddie Huang doubled down on his ambivalence towards the network show based on his memoir this weekend during an appearance on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

Huang, whose book, “Fresh Off the Boat: A Memoir,” was the inspiration for the ABC sitcom by the same name – which Huang narrates – has long been critical of the way he felt his story was treated once acquired by a major network. He reiterated those concerns to Maher.

Fresh Off the Boat: A Memoir by Eddie Huang

“The success of the show doesn’t make me happy or unhappy – I don’t care,” said Huang. “I don’t care if people watch it or not watch it.”

Huang opened up about his family, his career, and his growing disenchantment with mainstream entertainment, which he argues, wants “to tell universal White stories with Yellow faces, Black faces, Brown faces, but they tell the same universal story.”

Fresh Off the Boat just completed season 1 and talks of a season 2 is in session.

Fresh Off the Boat is a comedy series starring Randall Park, Constance Wu, Ian Chen, Hudson Yang, and Forrest Wheeler, that is inspired by the life of chef and food personality Eddie Huang and his book Fresh Off the Boat: A Memoir.

It is the first American television situation comedy starring an Asian-American family as protagonists to air on network primetime since Margaret Cho’s All American Girl, which aired for one season in 1994.Its style has been compared to the comedy series Everybody Hates Chris
