Natalie Chaidez (The Flight Attendant) and Dinh Thai (Wu-Tang: An American Saga) has set a pilot for AZNBBGRL at Freeform alongside producer Melvin Mar (Fresh off the Boat, Doogie Kamealoha, MD) and 20th Television. Mar will executive produce under The Detective Agency banner alongside Jake Kasdan and Kai Yu Wu (The Ghost Bride).
Deadline reports that the hourlong drama pilot is written by Chaidez and Thai. Set in the Vietnamese community of Little Saigon in Southern California’s Orange County, AZNBBGRL is a coming-of-age story about three Asian American teenagers driven by a desire to break free from generational expectations and carve out their own place in the world. Together, these three very different women find escape and form a bond deeper than family when they become entangled with a street gang that offers them a way out.
