Season 1

Fresh Off the Boat is an American television sitcom developed by Nahnatchka Khan and inspired by the life of chef Eddie Huang and his book Fresh Off the Boat: A Memoir, which follows the course of Eddie's Taiwanese family as they make their way from Washington, D.C. to Orlando, Florida to open up a steak restaurant during the mid-to-late 1990s.

It's 1995 and 11-year-old hip-hop-loving Eddie Huang (Hudson Yang) has just moved with his family from Chinatown in Washington D.C. to suburban Orlando. 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 (Randall Park), 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. Louis thinks that the best way to get customers in the door is to hire a white host to greet them and make them feel comfortable.

Eddie's mom, Jessica (Constance Wu), 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, to the fact that the humidity has ruined her hair.

Inspired by a true story, 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.

Fresh Off the Boat was written by Nahnatchka Khan, who also serves as executive producer. Jake Kasdan and Melvin Mar are executive producers, and Eddie Huang is producer. The series is produced by 20th Century Fox Television.
