Aspiring actresses Kelly Colburn (@KellyColburn) and Kaela Mei-Shing Garvin (@KaeMeiShing) are burning up the internet right now with season one of their webseries “2 Girls | 1 Asian"... 2 Girls | 1 Asian has set their sights to the stars, and in so doing are pushing the boundaries of how the internet is advancing progressive independent media. Between the series’ dedicated focus to elevating the stories of Asian American women (the show passes the Bechdel test in spades) and exploring biracial identity, the show is nothing if not courageous. Colburn and Garvin are pushing boundaries artistically as well as politically: the two have tackled all the steps from script to screen, and one recent episode was even an all-musical episode.

"I watched the first episode and immediately fell in love with Kaela and Kelly’s goofy, girl power humor (who doesn’t love the female empowerment “I am woman, hear me roar” type of approach to life?! I know I do!) that, in a way, pays homage to their favorite sitcom star, Mindy Kaling."

"...[the humor] and sly social commentary gives the episodes life... [it's] when the two throw verbal assaults and countermeasures that the show shines. If the remaining four episodes of the season build upon the camaraderie and wit shared between the two, 2 Girls | 1 Asian could become a springboard for the both women’s future endeavors."

I watched the Season 1 Trailer and can't wait for this to premiere next month.
Funny, DIY'ing it, and a musical episode?
What's not to love?
Thanks to Adam of Slant Eye for the Round Eye for giving our series trailer a thumbs-up!
You know how everyone complains that the hit HBO show Girls depicts young women in the big city as white and privileged? (Like Sex and the City, Friends, and heck… Mary Tyler Moorebefore it) Well, here’s a chance not just to complain about the lack of diversity in entertainment, but to help make a series about young, fun, hapa women a reality.
