Ali Wong and Randall Park Are Starring in a Romantic Comedy on Netflix

“American Housewife’s” Ali Wong and “Fresh off the Boat’s” Randall Park have been tapped by Netflix for its future, yet-to-be titled romantic comedy project.

Deadline, in its exclusive report, has confirmed that both Wong and Park will play as the lead roles in the Rom/Com project for Netflix. They will also act as writers of the film along with Michael Golamco.

It will follow the story of two childhood friends, Wong and Park, “who find themselves in vastly different socioeconomic situations when they fall in love as adults.” No official report yet on who will helm the film but Deadline has noted that Netflix is now looking for a director.

According to Angry Asian Man, the three, Wong, Park and Golamco, were longtime friends. It was said that the three attended the same university (UCLA).

Park is about to start working on the fourth season of “Fresh off the Boat,” while Wong, who worked on the set as a writer/consultant for the first few seasons, is currently part of the main cast of “American Housewife.”
