we tv series family restaurant premieres august 16

Meet the Quon family. They're the multi-generational Chinese immigrant clan at the center of WE tv's latest series Family Restaurant, a reality show look at culture clashes, family friction and the everyday high-pressure drama of running their restaurant, the Lingnan. Here's a short promo for the show:

Here's some more information on the show, from the WE tv's press release:
Chinese immigrants, Amy and Kinman Quon, are the kind of restaurant owners who greet you by name, seat you at your favorite table, and bring you your regular order without even asking. To them, "predictable" isn't a bad word - it spells comfort and consistency. They appreciate that in their business and in life in general! However, their first generation "westernized" children, Miles and Mandy, think their family's restaurant empire could use a little more spice - other than the Szechuan sauce. Beyond bringing the business into the 21st century, they wish they'd be a little more open-minded about their personal lives, too! Amy and Kinman want not only what's best for their children (which means their pick of the right spouses, clothes and careers), but what's best for their business, too. Can mom, dad and Lingnan regulars stomach all the progressive change the kids are dishing out?

Cooking frenzies, communication breakdowns and front-of-house antics abound, the daily trials and triumphs of running a busy restaurant can ignite some serious family friction. But the Quon family bond runs as deep as their passion for the Lingnan.
I don't know, it looks kind of interesting. Our neighbors to the north have actually already seen Family Restaurant -- the show started airing over two years ago on Food Network Canada. As for us stateside viewers, the show premieres August 16. For more information about the show, head over to the WE tv website.
