Inspired by chef and food personality Eddie Huang’s best-selling memoir by the same name, this TV series centres around a 12-year-old hip hop-loving EDDIE HUANG. He has just moved with his family from Chinatown in Washington D.C. to suburban Orlando, Florida. But they soon discover things are very different over there. For example, Orlando doesn’t even have a Chinatown… unless you count the Huang house.

Eddie’s dad LOUIS has dragged the family to the suburbs to pursue his version of the American dream – so they open Cattleman’s Ranch Steakhouse, a struggling western-themed restaurant. Louis thinks that the best way to get customers in the door is to hire a white host to greet them and make them comfortable. Eddie’s mom JESSICA has agreed to the move, but she finds Orlando a strange place – from the rollerblading stay-at-home moms, to the hospital-like grocery stores, and the fact that the humidity has ruined her hair.

On the other hand, Eddie is just trying to figure out his place in this new world, and this is much harder than he had thought at first. When the kids at school make fun of his homemade Chinese lunch, he begs his mom to get him “white people lunch”… aka, Lunchables. Like one of his idols, The Notorious B.I.G, Eddie’s a guy with mad dreams – first, get a seat at the table. Second, meet Shaq. Third, change the game (possibly with the help of Shaq).

This is a classic heart-felt immigrant story, seen through the eyes of a first- generation Asian American kid.

Today, the music industry informs fashion more than anything else. High-end shops and fashion-conscious youngsters try to copy what their music idols are wearing, rather than the couture which fashion houses are putting down the runway.

This series aims to search for Britain’s most promising fashion designers, who possess the image, vision and creativity to dress some of the world’s hottest musicians.

National Geographic Channel 

Hubble’s Cosmic Journey 

Premieres Friday, 24 April @ 10pm 

On National Geographic Channel 

Singtel TV Ch. 201, StarHub TV Ch. 411 

Hubble was initially launched in April 1990 onboard Space Shuttle Discovery. Its release into orbit over 500km above the Earth marked the birth of one of humanity’s biggest dreams – this was to place a telescope into space, high above the obscuring effects of the atmosphere, to gain the clearest view of the cosmos we could hope to see.

But in the months which followed, it was clear that the dream had turned into a nightmare. This was because Hubble’s mirror was found to have a flaw. Three years of heartache, and huge human resolve followed – to mount a rescue mission to fix the flaw. The results were amazing, and produced the most complete view of the Universe we’ve ever had. This is the story of the men and women who conceived, built, fixed and operated Hubble – the most celebrated science instrument in history.

Premieres this Monday, 13 April @ 11pm 

Screened every Monday at 11pm
