FOBia follows Kay – an Indian FOB (Fresh Off the Boat) – as she adapts to life in America with her American roommate, Ashanti and Indian neighbor (and also a FOB…but different…because..pssst…not all immigrants are the same) Bina.We follow their journey as they deal with cultural misunderstandings and general mayhem!!
With immigration being such a focal point of discussion these days, immigrants are often reduced to statistics. The discussion primarily revolves around how they may or may not benefit America and the economy. FOBia seeks to go behind those stats and give a face to these immigrants – it seeks to humanize the immigrant experience through a comedic lens. While we debate on what immigrants mean to America, FOBia attempts to answer what America means to immigrants.
