Chinese Burn

THE SHOW

Chinese Burn follows the escapades of three ‘normal’ Chinese girls. Together they navigate life in the capital and attempt to overcome the trials of modern life; from sex to relationships, to failing careers, paying rent, getting drunk and getting in fights, all through the experience of being a visitor from a scary superpower.

PRESS

‘British TV is not exactly overrun with shows boasting three-dimensional East Asian female, let alone three, which makes Chinese Burn feel not just funny, but important.’ THE GUARDIAN
 
‘What fun was BBC Threes new comedy Chinese Burn, a talented attempt to redefine the lives of young Chinese girls, in London …chiefly by confronting our own appalling stereotyping with wit, gumption and intelligence.’ THE OBSERVER
 
Chinese Burn reached #7 on BBC Iplayer one day after going online.
