These days Jo Koy is super busy from releasing his book Mixed Plate: Chronicles of an All-American Combo, to producing and starring in the film Easter Sunday, and now he'll have his own sitcom, Josep on a major TV network. In addition to all of that, he's going back on the road with his Just Kidding 2021 World Tour. All his projects brings the Filipino culture to the spotlight. Josep is no different as Jo Koy takes the lead role as a Filipino-American looking to navigate his personal and family life. One thing's for sure is that we'll see a lot of what a Fil-Am family is like living in America.
According to Deadline, "The ABC half-hour sitcom, which is currently in development, follows the life of a hardworking Filipino-American nurse. Written and executive produced by showrunner Steve Joe, Josep will also see its titular character navigating dating, fatherhood and his mother moving in with him." Relatable is an understatement for most of the Filipino community.
The half-hour comedy from 20th Television, is also written and executive produced by Michael Golamco and Randall Park for their production company Imminent Collision, along with executive producer Hieu Ho. Joe Meloche is executive producing as well as Jake Kasdan and Melvin Mar for Kasdan’s production company The Detective Agency.
