Bring on the Stephanie Hsu Domination. That’s not to say I want to be dominated by Stephanie … wait … Well, OK maybe I do. But that’s another topic for another day.

Our Oscar-Nominated Multiverse Queen Of The Everything Bagel is teaming up with Ashley Park (Emily In Paris), Sherry Cola (Good Trouble) and Sabrina Wu in Joy Ride.

The hilarious and unapologetically explicit story of identity and self-discovery centers on four unlikely friends who embark on a once-in-a-lifetime international adventure. When Audrey’s (Ashley Park) business trip to Asia goes sideways, she enlists the aid of Lolo (Sherry Cola), her irreverent, childhood best friend who also happens to be a hot mess; Kat (Stephanie Hsu), her college friend turned Chinese soap star; and Deadeye (Sabrina Wu), Lolo’s eccentric cousin. Their no-holds-barred, epic experience becomes a journey of bonding, friendship, belonging, and wild debauchery that reveals the universal truth of what it means to know and love who you are.

Yes, please!

The writing team, Cherry Chevapravatdumrong, Teresa Hsiao, and Adele Lim (who also directs), are some of the same folks behind episodes of Family Guy, Resident Alien, The Orville, Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens, Fresh Off The Boat, Raya and the Last Dragon, and Crazy Rich Asians.

Joy Ride also stars Ronny Chieng (Crazy Rich Asians), Lori Tan Chinn, David Denman (The Office, Greenland), Annie Mumolo, Desmond Chiam (The Falcon And The Winter Soldier), Alexander Hodge (Insecure), and Chris Pang (Crazy Rich Asians).

I believe in this team. And I believe I will be seeing Joy Ride when it comes to theaters on July 7th.
