“Family Style” Season 2 began filming in the beginning of 2020, and as the spread of the pandemic became global, it ended up shutting down production. Luckily, we were able to get six episodes filmed before shut down, and the silver lining is that our final two episodes ended up being a wonderful experience with an at-home cooking episode, and our finale that was all about connection during a time that can feel so isolated.
“Obviously, we’re shooting an Asian food show and that was already an issue with some of the racism and anti-Asian sentiment,” he continued. “But it was that night that we had the call with everybody and thought about what can we do. It was funny at the time because we thought at the time we’d only shut down for 2 or 3 weeks. As time went on, it slowly began to sink in — this was not going to be 2 or 3 weeks. To the credit of everyone at Stage 13 and our sponsor Toyota, they were committed to finishing the show.” – Phil Chung, Executive Producer of “Family Style” with YOMYOMF.
