Fox buys Sanjay Shah's comedy series 'Model Minorities'

A "stereotype-busting" Indian American comedy.



More Asians on TV, maybe! Fox has given a script commitment with significant penalty to Model Minorities, a single-camera comedy from Fresh Off The Boat co-executive producer Sanjay Shah, Portlandia and Baskets co-creator, executive producer and director Jonathan Krisel and 20th Century Fox TV.

Written by Shah, Model Minorities is a stereotype-busting comedy that follows a highly educated but struggling Indian American who moves in with his uneducated, but rich, immigrant cousin.

So... like an Indian Perfect Strangers? Sure, I'm down for it.

This could be great. Shah, who got his start on the animated series King of the Hill and was a co-executive producer on the comedy Enlisted, has had a hand in some of Fresh Off the Boat's most memorable episodes.

That title though... I'm going to have think about it.
