Deadline is reporting that Disney+ is currently working on a one-hour action-adventure drama titled Secret Guide to Celestial Creatures from Michael Golamco, Randall Park and Hieu Ho under their production company Imminent Collision.
Secret Guide to Celestial Creatures centers on a Korean American family of legendary guardians who protect the supernatural community that lives among us in plain sight. Golamco created the original, live-action concept and is set to write the pilot and executive produce. Park and Ho will also serve as executive producers for Imminent Collision.
Carolyn Cassidy, of 20th Television said: “We’ve had the pleasure for years of watching Randall as an anchor of our beloved series, Fresh Off the Boat. He is as hilarious as he is kind and talented. He introduced us to his longtime friends and collaborators Michael and Hieu. They blew us away with their taste and passion for creating television shows from their own unique perspective as Asian-American creators, and we knew immediately that we had to be in business with them. They’re smart, driven and brimming with ideas. They share our desire to bring voices to the screen that are underrepresented and in doing so, create series that reflect the drama and humor of the world we live in today.”
“We love genre stories that are funny, magical, and emotional — especially when they come from a very specific place that reflects a universal truth,” said Park, Golamco and Ho in a joint statement. “We’re thrilled to partner with Disney+ to bring Celestial Creatures to a global audience.”
Park, Golamco and Ho launched the film and TV production company Imminent Collision in 2019 to reflect the perspectives and experiences of the Asian-American community, often with a comedic spin.
A release date for Secret Guide to Celestial Creatures has not been set yet.
