Jun 28, 2018  •  Post A Comment

Comedy Central today announced plans to premiere the channel’s first-ever app-exclusive original series, the half-hour scripted comedy “Ronny Chieng: International Student.”

The show will begin streaming Aug. 13.

Co-written by Chieng, who’s known for “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” the series tracks a Malaysian student who comes to Australia to study law.

“He’s smart, driven and competitive, which would make him the perfect law student, if he actually wanted to be a lawyer,” Comedy Central says in today’s announcement. “As viewers follow Chieng from his first day on campus to the final exam of semester, he’ll encounter binge-drinking Australians, pompous blazer-wearing private school kids and hyper-competitive anti-social Asian students who want him to act ‘more Asian.'”
