ABC Orders a Pilot for Asian American Sitcom, "Fresh Off the Boat"!

It would be super cool to have a non-white network family comedy in the mix sometime this century (it's sad to have to say that, isn't it?), and Fresh Off the Boat, based on a memoir by chef Eddie Huang, just might be it. ABC has ordered the pilot, and Nahnatchka Khan, of Don't Trust the B, is writing and executive producing. I really enjoyed Don't Trust the B, and the fact that it's based off of a popular memoir sounds like a good mix. Of course, networks order 50+ pilots for 10 or so slots every year so no guarantees, but it's nice to dream, isn't it?
