Airdate: White Fever

ABC comedy created by Korean-Australian adoptee Ra Chapman to premiere in April.

New ABC comedy White Fever, created by and starring Ra Chapman (Wentworth, K-Box, Face To Face) will premiere in April.

Jane (Ra Chapman) is a cocky Korean-Australian adoptee with a love of hairy white guys – the hairier the better. When her friends call her out for having a white man fetish, she sets out to try and reprogram her libido, reignites a connection with her childhood friend Yu Chang (Chris Pang) and stumbles into the process of finding out where she belongs and who with.

From hens’ nights to country weddings, “Gotcha” days and adoptee dinners, it’s a K-Pop-infused, action-packed, wild ride filled with revelations, surprises and a large helping of Asian pop culture.

The cast also features Greg Stone (Jack Irish, Neighbours), Roz Hammond (Shaun Micallef’s Mad as Hell, Bay Of Fires), Harvey Zielinski (Deadloch, Love Me), Katie Robertson (Rosehaven, Five Bedrooms), Jillian Nguyen (One Night, Barons) and Cassandra Sorrell (Bump, North Shore).

White Fever is created and written by Korean-Australian adoptee Ra Chapman with writers Michele Lee, Clare Atkins and Harvey Zielinski, directed by Aidee Walker, and produced by Katherine Fry and Lisa Wang, with executive producers Dan Lake, Kurt Royan, Ra Chapman and Rosie Lourde. ABC Executive Producers are Todd Abbott and Louise Smith.

9pm Wednesday 10 April on ABC (all episodes available to stream on ABC iview).
