TV show description:
This modern urban comedy, while not autobiographical, is inspired by Aziz Ansari’s life observations. The series follows Dev (Ansari), a 30-year old New York-based actor and first generation American, as he navigates personal and professional life, while coming into his own.
Dev has a lot of questions. He ponders subjects as profound as the immigrant experience, as contemporary as emergency contraception etiquette, as frustrating as racial and ethnic type-casting, and as mundane as what’s for dinner.
Brian (Kelvin Yu), a Taiwanese-American, is Dev’s best friend. The duo, while of different ethnicities, have the child-of-immigrant experience in common.
Other friends include Denise (Lena Waithe), an African-American lesbian who tries to educate Dev; and Arnold (Eric Wareheim), a blundering, young, Caucasian-American male. Fatima and Shoukath Ansari — Ansari’s parents — play Dev’s immigrant parents.
