The Fob and I: Season Two
Help us bring season two of The Fob and I to life! We’re back to take on the issues no one’s talking about. There’ll be more chai, more music, and definitely more brown!
About The Project
Jisha, a FOB from India and Sita, an Americanized Indian, are forced to live together in one Hollywood apartment. These two girl cousins find that even when you see seem similar, you can be so different.
BINGE THE FIRST SEASON HERE!
SITA has lived her whole life in America—she’s too cool for school, cynical, sarcastic, and a little culturally ignorant. JISHA has lived her whole life in India—she’s outgoing, feisty, and she can’t wait to take on every experience America has to offer.
Sita’s parents have been upset at how culturally clueless she is—and have threatened to send her to India for a year if she doesn’t get smart. Jisha is tired of life in her small town in India and is eager to find a way to be all American.
TOGETHER, they must find a way take on each other’s culture. Can they trade places without ending up in a gorilla suit?
SEASON 2 STUFF
Watching Sita and Jisha in their apartment is an intimate look at the Indian experience in America—one that isn’t always the perfect doctor, engineer or spelling bee champ. We look forward to future episodes being a forum that opens up communication in the Indian community and empowers Indian women. How do South Asians deal with depression? How do they communicate with their families? How do they explain sexuality? And, most of all, how can South Asians feel at home in country that never feels fully theirs?
ISN’T AZIZ’S SHOW ENOUGH?
Nope. Television and entertainment are ways for our society to see what’s accepted, and we’re really happy that South Asians are beginning to be a part of that landscape. But, more often than not, Priyanka, Mindy, and Aziz just “happen” to be Indian, and usually it’s just for one episode. With The Fob and I, we don’t have to wait for that one-off episode. Every episode is a chance to explore the South Asian experience in America!
