ABOUT THE EVENT

The Television Academy cordially invites members to an event...

The State of Asian American Representation in Hollywood

In recent years, we have seen the first Emmy wins for writers and performers of Asian descent with Riz Ahmed, Aziz Ansari, Alan Yang, and Archie Panjabi, and there are more performers of Asian descent on television than ever before. However, while there are increased on-camera opportunities for AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) performers, their storylines remain limited. There is a large representation gap behind the camera as well.
 
As we celebrate Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month, panelists from across television platforms and professions will discuss the state of Asian American voices in the industry. The conversation will be centered on performers, storytellers, casting and where we go from here for better representation in television.

We look forward to seeing you!
