DIM SUM AND DRAMA!
WE TV'S NEWEST SERIES
Beginning August 16th at 10 PM ET/PT FAMILY RESTAURANT
DISHES OUT A HUMOROUS LOOK AT ONE
CHINESE FAMILY'S GENERATIONAL CULTURE CLASH
An engaging new family is dishing out dim sum and drama on WE tv - the Quon's! In WE tv's all-new series, FAMILY RESTAURANT, viewers see the kind of mayhem (and comedy) that can arise in our evolving world, as cultures and generations clash within one hilarious family. Meet the Quon's, owners of a booming Chinese restaurant, the Lingnan. The series showcases the fun-loving family and their lovable-but-bossy matriarch, who constantly creates conflicts with her children over everything, from how to "advance" the business, to them dating outside their race. You never know what the day may bring behind the walls of this 60-year-old institution, but it's sure to include drama! FAMILY RESTAURANT premieres on WE tv TUESDAY, AUGUST 16 at 10:00PM ET/PT with back-to-back half-hour episodes. The series airs regularly every Tuesday at 10:00 & 10:30 PM ET/PT.
Chinese immigrants, Amy and Kinman Quon, are the kind of restaurant owners who greet you by name, seat you at your favorite table, and bring you your regular order without even asking. To them, "predictable" isn't a bad word - it spells comfort and consistency. They appreciate that in their business and in life in general! However, their first generation "westernized" children, Miles and Mandy, think their family's restaurant empire could use a little more spice - other than the Szechuan sauce. Beyond bringing the business into the 21st century, they wish they'd be a little more open-minded about their personal lives, too! Amy and Kinman want not only what's best for their children (which means their pick of the right spouses, clothes and careers), but what's best for their business, too. Can mom, dad and Lingnan regulars stomach all the progressive change the kids are dishing out?
Cooking frenzies, communication breakdowns and front-of-house antics abound, the daily trials and triumphs of running a busy restaurant can ignite some serious family friction. But the Quon family bond runs as deep as their passion for the Lingnan.
