‘Subtle Asian Traits’ TV series in the works

Subtle Asian Traits' Facebook Group

The Facebook group 'Subtle Asian Traits' was founded in 2018 by friends who were still in high school then

A series that draws inspiration from the Facebook group Subtle Asian Traits is in the works, data-driven studio Jumpcut told The Hollywood Reporter.

Ivan Tsang and Justin R. Ching will be writing the “college-set” show, with John Zhang and Jumpcut as producers.

The group, which now has over 1.9 million members since it was founded in September 2018, houses discussion and memes about Asian culture and the diaspora.  “Our mission is to connect Asian individuals globally to create a community that celebrates the similarities and differences within the subtle traits of Asian culture and sub-cultures,” the group’s description reads.

John Zhang, former development associate at Perfect Storm Entertainment, secured the rights for the project from the group’s original creators, who were all in high school when they created it in 2018.

“Over the past couple months, we’ve been in contact with passionate filmmakers, producers and writers in our community who wanted to bring the sentiment of subtle asian traits to the screens. We’re humbled in being part of their vision to focus on the diverse ‘subtle’ asian traits throughout the diasporic Asian community,” the team behind the Facebook group said on Friday, June 25. 

Subtle Asian Traits joins two other series from Jumpcut, sci-fi action thriller Jack 9 and an untitled Western show. All these shows are still under development.

Jumpcut is a new studio that sources projects by using an algorithm to identify what story has elicited a particular level of online engagement.

The upcoming Subtle Asian Traits series is still in development. Further details about the project have yet to be announced. – with reports from Angelica Burlaza/
