Awkwafina's new Comedy Central show will have an all-female writers' room
"This is a show about being raised by my grandma and dad in Queens, living at home and finding purpose," Awkwafina says of her self-titled autobiographical sitcom Awkwafina. "No show tunes, all female writers room, an ode to Queens and the cultural BUFFET of people that helped shape me into the human I am."
