It’s been over 20 years since Margaret Cho starred in the first Asian-American family sitcom on network television, All-American Girl, but it looks like she might be coming back with her own show on Amazon. Deadline reports that Cho has an hour-long dramedy in the works at the streaming/selling-you-everything giant called Highland, where her character must attend court-ordered rehab and move in with her family, which now runs a pot dispensary. Unlike All-American Girl, Cho will have some creative control: She’ll be executive-producing the show alongside the writer Liz Sarnoff. It’s a long way from the bookstore in San Francisco, but hopefully there are still copies of Ass Master lying around.
