“K-Town,” the reality-TV series created and produced by R&B singer Tyrese Gibson has been in the works since April 2010.

“Asian have always been viewed through the media as either exaggerated stereotypes or the one-dimensional model minority. K-Town is a celebration of what it’s like to be a young Asian in American today,” executive producer Mike Le said in a press release.

“I think a little shame is a good thing at this point,” executive producer Eddie Kim went on to say in the press release.
