Ken Jeong promises there won't be any dog jokes on 'Dr. Ken'

Watch PaleyFest's panel with the stars of 'Dr. Ken.'

Over the weekend in Los Angeles, the Paley Center for Media hosted a screening and panel discussion for the upcoming ABC sitcom Dr. Ken as part of the PaleyFest Fall TV Previews. Audience members were treated to a screening of the pilot episode and a discussion with the stars of the show.

I had the honor and privilege of moderating the panel, which included executive producer/star Ken Jeong, Suzy Nakamura, Krista Marie Yu, Albert Tsai, Dave Foley, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Jonathan Slavin, Kate Simses and executive producer/showrunner Mike Sikowitz. They're an awesome cast and it was a ton of fun.

Jeong, who is very much the captain of this ship, talked about how the show has found its creative groove ("We are so on fleek right now"); what kind of Asian jokes they will not be making ("There won't be a goddamn dog joke in the fucking show"); and the awesomeness of kid actor Albert Tsai (He's "a national treasure").

The panel was streamed live on Yahoo, and is archived here. Check it out:

Huge thanks to ABC and the Paley Center for inviting me to take part in such a fun afternoon.

Dr. Ken premieres Friday, October 2 on ABC.
