In 2008, Jeong starred in his first major role, opposite Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott, as the villain in Judd Apatow's "Role Models." That same year, he also appeared in the cult comedy hits "Pineapple Express" and "Step Brothers." In 2011, Jeong reprised his role of "Mr. Chow" in "The Hangover 2." He was then seen in the franchise's third installment, "The Hangover 3." Other film credits include "The Duff," "Transformers 3," "Despicable Me 2," "Ride Along 2" and "Norm of the North." On television, Jeong was mostly recently seen starring on the network comedy "Dr. Ken," on which he also served as creator, writer and executive producer. Additionally, he was a series regular on the critically acclaimed comedy "Community" from 2009-2015. Other television credits include "The Office," "Entourage" and "MADtv." In 2015, Jeong directed an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary, "Student Athlete," and he also produced the Sundance Award-winning film "Advantageous," which received a Film Independent Spirit Award nomination.

About David Alan Grier: Though three-time Tony(R) and GRAMMY(R) Award nominee David Alan Grier's acting career is rooted in live theater, he also has made a name for himself in the world of television and film. He can currently be seen hosting "Snap Decision," a new comedic half-hour game show. Most recently he starred in "The Carmichael Show," which received four Image Award nominations. Grier made his TV movie/musical debut in 2015, starring as the Cowardly Lion in the Emmy Award-winning "The Wiz Live!," for which he earned two Image Awards and two Critics' Choice Awards nominations. He was an integral cast member of the classic and groundbreaking hit variety television show "In Living Color," and appeared in Comedy Central's list of "Top 100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time."

About PRETTYMUCH: Austin Porter, Brandon Arreaga, Edwin Honoret, Nick Mara and Zion Kuwonu were all making music in their respective hometowns before SYCO Music founder and entertainment mogul Simon Cowell discovered and invited them to a music showcase in New York. There, the band bonded and PRETTYMUCH was born. Since 2016, they have been sharing a Los Angeles home, where the vocal group writes, records and produces their music - with dance skills to match. PRETTYMUCH has attracted some of the biggest hit makers in the business. The band premiered their debut single, "Would You Mind," which was produced by Savan Kotecha, on FOX's TEEN CHOICE 2017. They have also released the upbeat track "Teacher," "No More" ft. French Montana and the acapella ballad "Open Arms." The group recently wrapped their first U.S. tour in support of Jack & Jack and was selected as one of Billboard's 21 Under 21 for 2017.

Scott Ellis (the 2016 Broadway revival of "She Loves Me," "Weeds") is an executive producer and will serve as the director overseeing the stage direction. Alex Rudzinski ("Grease: Live," "Dancing with the Stars") is an executive producer and will serve as the live television director.
