What do you do when you’ve won over $2 million as a celebrity poker player and you’re just out of college? Move to Hollywood and pursue acting, of course! Join JUST DOUG creator and actor Doug Kim on his semi-autobiographical journey to Los Angeles, where he navigates landing gigs with his best pal, potential romance with a writer/barista, and FaceTime ambushes from his disapproving mom.
Kim’s desires to find meaningful roles are anything but aided by his aloof, overloaded agent, whose motivation is commission over substance. A chance opportunity seemingly rewards Kim when he lands a spot as the love interest on a hot new comedy series. When microaggressions abound on the set and his hopes are dashed, Kim has to choose: He can sell out to advance his career and let down the Asian American community, or he can stick it to the broken Hollywood system and maintain his authenticity. JUST DOUG is sharp, funny, painfully relevant and bubbling over with talented writing and performances.
