Seeking Asian Female premieres on PBS tonight!

Posted by Debbie Lum (Creator)

Hi Everyone,

I hope you're not getting inundated by too many news blasts... but some of you may not have signed up for our newsletter (which you can do on the Contact page of our website), liked us on Facebook, or followed our Twitter (if not, do it now!) Just in case, we wanted to remind you that tonight, Monday May 6 at 10pm ET is the broadcast premiere of Seeking Asian Female on Independent Lens! It's being carried in nearly every PBS market, so if you live in the US (and parts of Canada) you may be able to see the one-hour version that all of you at Kickstarter helped create through your generous support!!!! Please be sure to check local listings as not every area airs it at the same time and it might be playing on your station throughout the month of May during Asian American heritage month. As well, it is available on the Cove player at

We're getting some really great press for the broadcast... including a nice write-up in the NY Times by Mike Hale (the actual fit to print newsprint paper) and an interview with yours truly and an analysis of "yellow fever" by Susan James on ABC

Thanks for making They're All So Beautiful a huge success and if you miss the broadcast, the feature-length version is now available for home and educational use and on iTunes. For the month of May, this "director's cut" will also be available on Comcast on Demand for only $4.99! You can find out about this and so much more at our website:

Thanks! And thanks for spreading the word!!

Cheers, Debbie
