SAN FRANCISCO, CA — They’re baaaack! After a sizzling debut in 2012, Sheetal Sheth (The World Unseen), Lynn Chen (Saving Face, Creator of “The Actor’s Diet”) and Michelle Krusiec (Chinglish) return in this CAAM-produced comedy about three best frenemies and their cray cray antics in a book club, screening one-night only Thursday, September 26, 7:00pm at Landmark Theater, Los Angeles. MC’d by Angry Asian Man’s Phil Yu.
Sophie (Chen) is the human Rainbow Brite, wreaking sunshine even as she reveals her inner Dexter. Geraldine (Krusiec) is the badly permed, cult-leader potentate, whose talents range from interpretative dance to balancing martinis. And Leena (Sheth) is the unabashed thug-ess in heels, whose constant refusal to actually read any books is matched only by her trademark tardiness.
In Season 2, the book club moves to Sophie’s home, where the young entrepreneur capitalizes on a booming cupcake business and hires a personal assistant, Donatello (the dashing Leonardo Nam, The Perfect Score; The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift). Leena takes an immediate interest in this hunky new help, providing a very loose interpretation of the term “manservant.” Meanwhile, Geraldine goes deep into the world of motivational speaking, morphing into a self-ordained self-help guru.
We’re also introduced to Geraldine’s worldly, if slightly raunchy mother, played by iconic actress Tsai Chin (Joy Luck Club), and guest appearances from comic maverick Parvesh Cheena (Outsourced, Friend Me), and Internet darling Anthony Ma.
