According to the 45-year-old actor, the star of “Always Be My Maybe
” and “Fresh Off Boat
”, the company’s mission is to develop “comedy-forward stories from Asian American perspectives for all audiences,” Variety
“Our immigrant parents came to America with a dream. That dream was for their children to land a first look television producing deal, scripted, and unscripted, at a major Hollywood studio,” Park, Ho, and Golamco, said in a joint statement. “We would like to thank Carolyn, Howard, Dana, Craig and the entire 20th team for helping us make our parents proud.”
In addition to announcing their production company, Imminent Collision also landed its first deal with 20th Century Fox TV, the same studio behind Park’s “Fresh Off The Boat.”
“We’ve had the pleasure for years of watching Randall as an anchor of our beloved series, Fresh Off the Boat. He is as hilarious as he is kind and talented,” President of Creative Affairs at 20th TV, Carol Cassidy, said in a statement. “He introduced us to his longtime friends and collaborators Michael and Hieu. They blew us away with their taste and passion for creating television shows from their own unique perspective as Asian-American creators, and we knew immediately that we had to be in business with them. They’re smart, driven and brimming with ideas. They share our desire to bring voices to the screen that are underrepresented and in doing so, create series that reflect the drama and humor of the world we live in today.”
The company gets its name from Park, Golamco, and Ho’s play they worked on at the UCLA Asian American theater company, Lapu the Coyote That Cares
, which Park co-founded.
Ho most recently worked at BuzzFeed and assisted the media outlet in setting up projects at New Line, Universal, Warner Bros. and Comedy Central, among other platforms.
Meanwhile, Golamco is a stage and screenwriter and had previously worked with Park and Ali Wong in writing the Netflix Rom-Com hit “Always Be My Maybe.”
