The veteran comedienne, who rose to prominence on the ABC series “All American Girl” in 1994 for being the rare example of an Asian-American actor in a starring role, will launch her own scripted series July 3 on her YouTube channel.
Cho will star in “In Transition,” which is billed as a dark comedy about a trio of women newly released from prison. She is executive producing the series with veteran reality-TV showrunner Rico Martinez, who collaborated with her last on her last TV outing, VH1’s “The Cho Show,” and Selene Luna, who also co-stars. Martinez wrote “Transition” with John Stapleton.
“Transition” is 13 short-form episodes. Each episode will be followed by a live “hangout” between her and viewers on YouTube.
Cho was nominated for an Emmy in 2011 in the category of comedy guest star for depicting Kim Jong-Il on “30 Rock.” More recently, she is a regular on Lifetime series “Drop Dead Diva.”
