20th Television is developing a brand-new drama series called “Interior Chinatown”, which is being created by Taika Waititi and Charles Yu, who wrote the 2020 bestselling book of the same name. It will star Jimmy O. Yang, Ronny Chieng, Chloe Bennett, Sullivan Jones, Tzi Ma, Diana Lin, Archie Kao, and Lisa Gilroy.

“Interior Chinatown” follows the story of Willis Wu (played by Jimmy O. Yang), a background character trapped in a police procedural show, trying to find his way into the larger story–and along the way, discovers secrets about the strange world he inhabits and his family’s buried history.

According to Deadline, Lauren Tom has joined the cast of the upcoming show.  Lauren will be playing a recurring character called Betty, who is a successful real estate agent with a sharp suit and sharper tongue. When her assistant drags her out to look at an abandoned laundromat in Chinatown, Betty is clearly irritated, but her attitude changes when she sees her old friend (and new rival), Lily Wu.

Lauren Tom has previously starred in “Andi Mack”, “Goliath”, “Trollhunters”, and “The Joy Luck Club”.

Taika Waititi is an executive producer on the show and will be directing the pilot. Charles Yu, will also be an executive producer and the showrunner of the series. Other executive producers include Dan Lin, Lindsey Liberatore, Elsie Choi, Jeff Skoll, Miura Kite and Garrett Basch.

The series will be released on Hulu in the United States, and expect to see it released internationally as a Star Original on Star+ in Latin America and on Disney+ around the world.
