The ABC comedies both feature predominantly Asian casts, which was unheard of until Fresh Off the Boat debuted last year. Then, last fall, the network debuted Dr. Ken, which stars The Hangover star Ken Jeong as a fictionalized version of himself. Since then, the shows have had several cast crossovers — Dr. Ken’s TV son, Albert Tsai, has appeared several times on FOTB, while that comedy’s youngest kid Ian Chen recently did a cameo on the Dr. Ken. Now, the dads are getting involved.
