NextShark and HBO are partnering together to bring Asian American audiences an exclusive screening of the first episode of “House of Ho”, HBO Max’s highly-anticipated docuseries centered on an ultra-rich Asian American immigrant dynasty.
“House of Ho” centers on the Ho Family, a Vietnamese immigrant family who moved to Houston, Texas and became millionaires in a single generation through banking and real estate development. The show will follow patriarch Binh Ho, his wife Hue Ho, their children Judy and Washington, as well as extended family members.
Upholding the legacy of a multi-millionaire family that achieved a life of opulence through hard work and resilience is a herculean task in and of itself — unless they happen to be Asian, in which expectations of exponential growth must often be satisfied.
Washington Ho, a Vietnamese American man in his late 30s, is up to the challenge.
