The West Island native cast and crew of the new comedy web series entitled The Wok are proud to announce the release of their first season, which is set to air on YouTube on December 25, 2016 at 1PM EST. Subsequent episodes will be released on a weekly basis. With their first season ready to launch, their second season is currently in pre-production; the show’s creators intend to grow the series over time.
The web series is about three Asian guys who go work for their common former lover at a Chinese restaurant called The Wok.
Although there are occasional references to Asian culture throughout the series, the show is not intended to give off a stereotypical Asian or “Fresh off the boat” vibe. They are four quirky individuals running a struggling restaurant and they just happen to be Asian. The show is thus meant to attract all fans of situational comedy
SERIES PLOT SUMMARY
