Chinos is an upcoming American animated web television series from Fresh Off the Boat’s Eddie Huang. Raf Martinez, Huang’s producing partner under their Color Correct banner, acclaimed tattoo artist Dr. Woo and artist/animator Bernard Chang (who will also art direct and executive produce) for HBO Max.

Premise

Chinos is a show that "will shatter the model minority myth and hopefully usher in a generation of Asian American storytellers that do not feel beholden to the expectations of others,”

Production

Development

Huang has had a colorful self-mythologizing career, working variously as an attorney, drug dealer, stand-up comic, restaurateur, and chef. His 2013-released autobiography Fresh Off the Boat: A memoir covered his rise as a food celebrity in New York City, as well as his identity as an Asian-American.

The concept is "an exploration of the subcultures in Los Angeles through the Asian American experience while flipping the “model minority” notion on its head." said Raf Martinez, Huang’s producing partner under their Color Correct banner.

"It is a project that seeks to shine a light on our singularity as individuals and the shared problems that bring us together as a community. Even my mom approved of this deal, excited to do this with HBO Max.”

Martinez added: “The central principle upon which Color Correct was founded is to identify and nurture the next generation of diverse storytellers, foster their ideas, and lead the charge from the margins to the mainstream. We are thrilled to partner and continue our mission with HBO Max.”

Release

On July 9, 2020, HBO Max officially greenlit and announced its latest acquistion for an adult-animated pilot, Chinos, based off his memoir Fresh Off the Boat that also inspired a live-action television series of the same name, in which he produced and narrated.

Trivia

  • During the offical announcement, Eddie Huang was currently in post on Boogie, the film he directed for Focus Features with Taylour Paige, Taylor Takahashi, Domenick Lombardozzi and Mike Moh starring with the late Pop Smoke.
    • Next, Huang will direct Elephant Mountain in Taiwan, based on his original idea.
