The Human Panda gets his own sitcom.

Eddie, you made it!

Baohaus owner/rabble-rouser/Vice star/Human Panda Eddie Huang has been a busy man since releasing his memoir, Fresh Off the Boat, last year.

This major network platform represents a significant coup for Huang, who has made it clear that his goal is to get his story out there and represent Asian-Americans in mainstream media.

By the looks of the trailer, though, we’d say the show looks less like All-American Girl and more like the Goldbergs, the very funny Jewish family sitcom starring Jeff Garlin.

Either way, Eddie’s come a long way since ranking fictional chefs on First We Feast.
