  APA'S ON TV

The purpose of this section is to provide highlights and noteworthy appearances of US Asians/APA's on television shows and films. This includes people on both sides of the camera from actors, directors, writers, special effects personnel, camera people and producers. Contact us by clicking HERE if we've missed anybody.


WHY

With the current "diversity" issues still not truely reflecting the various cultures existing in the United States, a constant watch and awareness of the status of Asian/Asian Pacific Americans are needed.

We have seen with the Black, Jewish and Hispanic communities that with an united and constant effort, representation can be attain. As a result, we are always seeking strategic alliances with any viable organizations to help promote the attainment of diversity in the media.

In addition, many people recognize the many parallels between the general public's perception of the US Asians / Asian Pacific American on movies and television. A personal invitation is extended to visit our Film Section to discover how our communities are being portrayed within the "Big Screen."


NEW FEATURES

In addition to the t.v. programming, we will be devoting a portion of this section on Internet programming.

As this medium becomes more popular and influential, we anticipate that our images within the "Net" will be an important part of how the "New Generation" of the general public perceive the Asian/Asian Pacific American communities!

As noted in IceBox.Com's infamous "Mr. Wong" - we need to be ever watchful on how images are being portrayed in this medium. Wrong and incorrect images being shared on any public medium can only have a derogatory effect in how our US Asians / Asian Pacific American communities are perceived within the general public.


DETAILED INFORMATION

Additional information on the shows can be found at ClickTV/ TV Guide Online and TV Quest


      WHAT IS COVERED

Information from listings on the major network television stations (i.e. CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX), cable stations (i.e. HBO, ShowTime, CineMax, Lifetime, Sci-Fi, PAX, A&E, etc.), "Super Stations" (i.e. UPN, WGN, TNT, TBS), PBS shows, etc. from many resources will be listed. Visit the websites listed below for specific information on shows of interest.


SUPPORT

Ratings and market share are the "bottom line" that the entertainment companies judge what programs are on and/or off television.

We need to support the new programming that displays accurate imagery that is being produced and support past viable programs - as we are the best judges. If we, as a community, don't support this type of programming - no one else will.

As a community, we need to support the careers of prominent US Asians / Asian Pacific Americans on television such as Lucy Liu (Ally McBeal, Charlie's Angels), Lisa Ling (The View), Garret Wang (Star Trek), Suzy Nakamura (sometimes on The West Wing), Amy Hill (The Strip Mall), Jessica Yu (director/West Wing), James Wong (X-Files), etc. to ensure that their careers will provide the opening for other talented artists!

If you are looking for additional ways to facillate accurate and positive images of US Asians / Asian Pacific American communities, please visit our Resource Section to discover how to join the efforts of the many listed community organizations.


FEATURED ARTISTS

Each month, we will feature noteworthy and important artists from the film, music, literature, athletics, community and politics world for your review.

It is important to know who our visionaries, community leaders, story tellers of our spirit, communicators of our past and our political mouth-pieces to know that our voices are being heard.
