The project will be a single-camera show about the life of first-generation Chinese-American Janet Zhao. The series follows her journey as she “struggles to set healthy boundaries with her crazy, exhausting family”. When she is the sole inheritor of her wealthy grandmother’s fortune, she becomes “the unwilling new matriarch of the family she’s spent her life trying to keep at arm’s length”.

Gao is set to write the script and be executive producer alongside Brian Grazer, Francie Calfo, and Samie Kim Falvey.
