“Dr. Ken” is the hit sitcom starring Ken Jeong that premiered last season. Loosely based on his prior life as a doctor, the show jumps back and forth between his work life and his family life. Suzy Nakamura plays his therapist wife, while Krista Marie Yu and Albert Tsai play his kids.
According to Nakamura’s Backstage interview, this season, his family life and work life will be intertangling in the season premiere, titled “Allison’s Career Move,” as his wife Allison moves her practice into his HMO. Also, Ken’s father (played by Dana Lee) will be moving in.
The new episode will air on Friday, September 23.
It was also announced that there will be a crossover episode between ‘Dr Ken,’ which airs on ABC at 8:30PM, leading into ‘Shark Tank’ at 9PM, coming in November.
According to Entertainment Weekly: “In the episode, Dave (Albert Tsai) is invited to pitch his Hot Legs Duvet invention on the hit reality series for entrepreneurs, which pleases Ken (Ken Jeong). But when he learns that these Sharks don’t always play nice, Ken worries about allowing his son to swim in that treacherous tank, and joins him in the studio to demonstrate Dave’s product. Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John, and Kevin “Mr. Wonderful” O’Leary will be the Sharks participating in the episode.”
