Journalist Lisa Ling is working on a new docu-series HBO Max. Take Out will bring viewers into Asian restaurants with the former co-host of The View as she explores the stories behind the eateries and the people that own them.
“Asian restaurants representing the diverse people and cuisines of the continent are as ubiquitous as McDonald’s, and each one of them has a unique and compelling story. Lisa explores the storied and complicated journey of the Asian community, past and present, at a critical time, while zig-zagging the country celebrating the joy that the little white take-out box can bring.”
Ling said the following about the upcoming series:
“It is time that we learn about a community that has been integral to America’s development but has largely been ignored by American history. My own family’s path to their American dream started in a Chinese restaurant, and I cannot wait to learn the stories of those whose journey paralleled mine throughout different parts of this country.”
A premiere date for the new series will be set at a later date.
