Facebook Group "Subtle Asian Traits" To Be Made Into TV Series

A show inspired by funny memes and honest discussions shared on the social media page.

Subtle Asian Traits, the popular Facebook group created in 2018 by nine Chinese-Australian individuals, is getting its very own TV show. Currently at 1.9 million members, the social media page is dedicated to anything from funny memes to honest discussions on being Asian.

Produced by the newly launched studio Jumpcut, the upcoming series takes inspiration from memes and posts about the Asian diaspora experience shared on SAT. Not much information about the storyline has been revealed so far, but The Hollywood Reporter states that it will be a “college-set narrative” written by Ivan Tsang and Justin R. Chung, with production by John Zhang.

“One day (hopefully!) we will get to see our stories in this group on screen. Growing up, many of us did not have the community to share some of the nuances of being Asian. Starting the group, we never thought that Subtle Asian Traits would impact so many people and result in such a shared sentiment of belonging,” SAT’s founders announced. “We’re humbled in being part of [the] vision to focus on the diverse ‘subtle’ Asian traits throughout the diasporic Asian community, and as part of this new wave of Asian representation in media dispelling stereotypes previously used to characterize us.”

Stay tuned as we learn more about the screen adaptation of Subtle Asian Traits.
