Trailer: Alan Yang’s Tigertail heads to Netflix
Staff Reporter | On 05, Apr 2020
Master of None co-creator Alan Yang is returning to Netflix this week with Tigertail, a new multi-generational drama.
Yang, who was Emmy nominated for his work on Parks and Recreation, is putting on a serious face for his new drama, which follows Pin-Jui (Hong-Chi Lee), a free-spirited yet impoverished young Taiwanese factory worker. He makes the difficult decision to leave his homeland — and the woman he loves — behind in order to seek better opportunities in America. But years of monotonous work and an arranged marriage devoid of love or compassion leave an older Pin-Jui (Tzi Ma) a shadow of his former self. Unable to sympathize with his daughter Angela (Christine Ko) and at risk of living out his retirement in solitude, Pin-Jui must reconnect with his past in order to finally build the life he once dreamed of having.
Spanning continents and decades, from 1950s Taiwan to present-day New York City, Tigertail is written and directed by Yang and features a supporting cast including Joan Chen, Yo-Hsing Fang, Kuei-Mei Yang, Kunjue Li, and Fiona Fu. It premieres on Netflix on Friday 10th April.
Here’s the trailer:
Tigertail is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.
