First Gen is a sit-com work in progress created by Nigerian-American first generation immigrants. The show is written by Yvonne Orji and is produced byChika Chukudebelu and Kay Oyegun. The idea behind the show is to poke fun at the stereotypes that come with being immigrants.
It centers on the Main Character, Joanna- a first generation Nigerian-American- who trades in a stable career in medicine, for the uncertainties of stand up comedy, and the adventures that ensue when her traditional immigrant parents discover her plans.
