Angry Asian Man:
Australia is getting its own TV version of Fresh Off The Boat. Based on the bestselling memoir by Benjamin Law, The Family Law is a drama-comedy series set on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast over one hot summer, following “a sprawling Chinese-Australian family of seven who are unlike any you’ve ever met.”
The Family Law unfolds in the dysfunctional and hilarious world of the Law family — as seen through the eyes of 14-year-old Benjamin Law. As Benjamin dreams of soap opera stardom, his parents contemplate separation. Over the course of one unforgettable summer, the self-absorbed clarinet-playing teenager increasingly finds himself embroiled in other people’s dramas, usually with disastrous results.
The six-episode series premieres on January 14 on SBS. Here’s a trailer:
