Disney took advantage of the broadcast of the 95th annual Academy Awards on ABC to promote a few of the new shows coming to its platforms.
Fresh off of Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan’s Oscar wins for best actress and best supporting actor, respectively, for multiverse mindbender Everything Everywhere All at Once, Disney Plus will premiere new series American Born Chinese on May 24.
Yeoh and Quan both appear in the show along with fellow Everything co-star and Oscar nominee Stephanie Hsu, who guest stars.
American Born Chinese is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Gene Luen Yang and tells the story of Jin Wang, a Chinese student living in the U.S. whose life changes radically when he meets a new foreign student and becomes entangled in a battle of Chinese mythological Gods.
Besides Yeoh, Quan and Hsu, the series also stars Ben Wang, Yeo Yann Yann, Chin Han, Daniel Wu, Jimmy Liu and Sydney Taylor. Kelvin Yu executive produces and showruns. Destin Daniel Cretton directs and serves as executive producer, alongside Melvin Mar and Jake Kasdan, Erin O’Malley and Luen Yang.
Hulu gave viewers a sneak peek of season three of Only Murders in the Building, starring Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez.
This season will also feature Meryl Streep and Paul Rudd, as the above teaser reveals.
Only Murders in the Building hails from co-creators and writers Steve Martin and John Hoffman. Martin and Hoffman executive produce along with Short, Gomez, This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman, and Jess Rosenthal. The series is produced by 20th Television, a part of Disney Television Studios.
Finally, FX’s critically acclaimed The Bear returns for a ten-episode second season in June.
Created by Christopher Storer, The Bear follows a classically-trained young chef, Carmen Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White), who returns to Chicago to run his family’s Italian beef sandwich shop after his brother’s death. Besides White, the series also stars Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Ayo Edebiri, Lionel Boyce, Liza Colón-Zayas and Abby Elliott.
