“Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens” Trailer Shows Off Awkwafina’s Expanding Empire Moving Into TV

Originally, just a rapper, Awkwafina/Nora Lum has now expanded her reach into starring in movies (Ocean’s 8, The Farewell), both in comedy and drama, and, as of Jan. 22nd, leading off her own semi-autobiographical TV series about growing up in NYC as the one and only Awkwafina

From the looks of it, not only is this Awkwafina maintaining a wide acting range, furthering her star power, and offering up something that looks pretty enticing to us, but it also seems as Comedy Central has the perfect series to follow-up Broad City with. 

Take a look for yourself with the Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens trailer here, then look for the series premiere on Comedy Central on Wed. Jan. 22nd.
