Trailer for a bilingual sitcom pilot set in contemporary Beijing about the misadventures of two "foreigners", their Chinese landlord, and his daughter who all attempt and mostly fail to bridge the cultural gap in Beijing.
This Ad Valorem International produced sitcom is about Chinese and "Foreigner" bonding and unbonding. It's about cherishing the similarities and relishing the differences that exist between all of us. The language is a combination of Chinese and English. Melvin and Larry speak English with each other, but Chinese with Mr. Lee and his daughter, Lingling. This show attempts to peel away cultural layers and thereby focus on what lies on the inside, the intrinsic nature of who we are undefined by culture, creed, religion and class.
