‘Don’t Trust the B’ Creator Nahnatchka Khan Sells a New Show to ABC

By

Don’t Trust the B creator Nahnatchka Khan just sold her second show in as many weeks. Deadline reports that ABC is developing a new show for the 2014-2015 TV season written and produced by Khan. Called Fresh Off the Boat, the project is based on restauranteur/TV personality Eddie Huang’s memoir of the same name and follows a Chinese family who moves to Orlando (Huang’s family, upon which the show is based, is Taiwanese). Like Huang, Khan is also a first-generation American. Jake Kasdan (New Girl, Bad Teacher) is also producing the show. This is Nahnatchka Khan’s second  TV show sale of the season, following a project called Fatrick, produced by Jim Rash and Nat Faxon, that she sold to Fox earlier this month.
