#YooTube: TV Pilot “Olympic Boulevard” Sold to Peacock
I am thrilled to announce that I sold my first original TV drama pilot to Peacock, NBCUniversal’s upcoming streaming platform, with producers Neil Meron and Mark Nicholson of Zadan/Meron Productions and choreographer Kyle Hanagami. Universal TV is the studio for this project.
Entitled OLYMPIC BOULEVARD, my pilot is about a disgraced Korean American former K-Pop star who finds his chance at redemption and a possible comeback when he agrees to teach at one of the first K-Pop training schools in America. This show was inspired by my Korean American family, my music background as a professional violinist and is set against the backdrop of K-Pop. I am so honored to be working with the Emmy-nominated producer Neil Meron and Kyle Hanagami, the esteemed choreographer of such superstars as BlackPink, BTS, Britney Spears, Nick Jonas, and ‘N Sync among others. (You can watch Kyle Hanagami’s amazing dance choreography here: https://www.youtube.com/user/kylehanagami) And as a Korean American musician, I could not be prouder of the global success of K-Pop.
As I write this, we are still in the development phase as we work on the pilot script. My fingers are crossed we can make the next step, but until then, this has been a dream come true to sell my first original TV drama pilot. No matter what happens next, I am grateful for this amazing opportunity.
