I had a good laugh watching the trailer, and it reminded me a little of Chris Rock’s, Everybody Hates Chris.
The show satires some of the trials and tribulations of being a 1st Gen Nigerian-American.
First Gen is a sitcom written by Yvonne Orji and produced by Chika Chukudebelu and Kay Oyegun. The show is about Joanna- a first generation Nigerian-American- who trades in a stable career in medicine, for the uncertainties of stand up comedy and what follows after her parents find out her plans.
The show is currently in production, but we’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for when it starts.
Watch the trailer below.
