The storyline of The Fresh Off the Boat

The Fresh Off the Boat (FOB) is a comedy and drama series based on the memoir of celebrity chef Eddie Huang, airing on ABC.

Eddie Huang is determined to give his sons a better life than he had, especially after moving from the rough neighborhood of Chinatown in Washington DC to suburban Orlando. Under strict rules imposed by their father, they have to maintain perfect grades and stay out of trouble at school or else face serious consequences with their dad’s belt.

The show was created by Nahnatchka Khan, who told FOX411 “I wanted to do something that would be an homage which is how I felt about The Cosby Show” when she was growing up.


Constance Wu: After Fresh Off the Boat Tweet Backlash, I Tried Suicide

A few months ago, Constance Wu publicly shared a story from her past. The actress and Fresh Off the Boat star revealed on Twitter that she attempted to end her life after backlash over an episode of the show.

But surprisingly speaking out about her struggle with depression feels like it’s been easier than ever for Wu, who has now experienced two seasons of accolades as one of TV’s most sought-after actresses. Her message is not just a story about herself; it is one of hope. One that speaks volumes in regards to how mental health should be discussed openly and truthfully in our country.
