This article is about a week old, but I just wanted to congratulate the eight writers admitted into this year’s CAPE New Writers Fellowship.
About ten years ago, CAPE helped me launch my writing career and I am forever grateful. I remain a huge supporter of CAPE and encourage anyone reading this to also become involved (especially if you identify as API or enjoy telling their stories).

I’ll be speaking on tomorrow night’s WGA panel all about pitching, developing, and selling original pilots. If you’re a WGA member, I invite you to attend — you should have received an e-mail in recent weeks with an RSVP link.
Look forward to seeing you all there and dropping some knowledge… Or I’ll just nod along with the smart things other panelists say and enjoy a free bottled water. Whatevs.

EXCITING NEWS!!! Excerpts from my sitcom pilot, “I Got You Abe” will be performed at a live reading put on by the “Breakthrough Reading Series.” It’s a monthly event where chosen writers get to hear their material performed by actors cast right on the spot!
It’s taking place this coming Wednesday, March 20th at The Broadwater Theater in Hollywood. There’s a networking hour from 7pm-8pm, with readings beginning at 8pm, then more networking to follow. Yes, there’s a bar connected to the theater, so yay — weekday drinking!

Check out season 5 of “Trolls: The Beat Goes On!” Now streaming on Netlflix! It’s a “Written By Aaron Ho”-palooza, with three of my eps. Be sure to catch “Don’t Worry Be Peppy,” “Glitter Loss,” and “Bringing Up Birdy.” Congrats to the rest of the cast and crew, these came out great! #DWTrollsTV#Netflix
The day is finally here! The first of many eps I wrote for “Trolls: The Beat Goes On” is now streaming on Netflix! Be sure to check out “Sibling Quibbling” along with the rest of season 4! Whoo hoo! #TrollsTV#TrollsTheBeatGoesOn
“Crazy Rich Asians” hits theaters today!!! I encourage everyone to see this film, it is truly spectacular. I’ve already seen it once and am seeing it again tonight, and will probably go a third time. It is so exciting and inspiring to have an American studio film starring an all Asian cast that is also written and directed by Asian filmmakers — I never thought it would happen! Congrats Adele Lim on an amazing script!
This film is so much more than a “rom com,” it digs deep into love, family, culture, and finding happiness from within. And trust me, you don’t have to be ASIAN or CRAZY RICH to enjoy or relate to this film. It’s universal in so many ways and I promise you’ll leave the theater satisfied.
There’s been a lot of articles and interviews in the press lately, but this one was one of my faves. Check it out!
“I never saw another Asian writer in writers’ room until my show… It’s about the next generation. Make it a point to hire a diverse writing staff. I think we have one white on the writing staff and the show came out fine.” -Alan Yang, creator/exec producer of “Master of None”
“Trolls: The Beat Goes On!” is now streaming on Netflix!!! More episodes will roll out in the future, including many written by yours truly. I’ll keep ya all posted, but till then, check out the first 6 eps and prepare to laugh and sing your heart out!
Now that it’s been announced, I’m thrilled to finally share that I’ve been writing on the new “Trolls” TV series premiering on Netflix on January 19th, 2018. I am super proud of all the amazing work the cast and crew has put in and I can’t wait for you all to see it!
This show has it all… Endless laughs? Check! Catchy songs? Check! Cute characters that love hugs, poop cupcakes, and fart glitter? Check, check, and check!
