According to OK Magazine, the show follows mother and daughter as Mama Mai moves in with Jeannie following her divorce from husband Freddy Harteis.

“I’m very proud. But I don’t want to tell [you] because I don’t want [you] to be stuck up. That’s Asian style,” Mama Mai jokes in the trailer.

“Mother and daughter relationships are all I see across Hollywood right now, but you haven’t seen something like me and Mama Mai,” Jeannie quips.

“Meet the woman who drove television host Jeannie Mai to run away from home as a teenager when she was 16,” the trailer’s description reads on YouTube. “Now that Jeannie is getting divorced, Mama Mai has moved back in. It’s a docu-comedy featuring a Hollywood celebrity and her unconventional Vietnamese family who are all chasing the American dream by any ASIAN means necessary.”

Jeannie encouraged fans to comment or repost the trailer using the hashtag #MaiOhMai “to let me know if you guys would want to watch this.”

44 Blue Productions, the same company behind “Wahlburgers” and “Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry,” produced the show, which reportedly hasn’t been picked up by a network yet.
