Dr. Ken Set Visit and Halloween Show Preview
It's been a whirlwind week for me that started out in Los Angeles where I got the chance to visit the sets of two great ABC comedies - "The Goldbergs" and "Dr. Ken." I'm going to save my post about "The Goldbergs" for next week but for now, I want to make sure you tune into Dr. Ken - the ABC comedy starring Dr. Ken Jeong that's now in its second season. I had the chance to visit the set this week, speak with the cast members and watch a preview of their Halloween episode which airs tonight!
When Allison is disappointed that Halloween doesn't seem to scare Dave anymore,his Grandpa manages to have him and Dr. Ken on the edge of their seats when he shares a scary Korean gwishin (ghost) story that convinces Dave he's not as tough as he thinks. The entire cast brings this colorful story to life playing the various gwishins, which are all actual ghosts from Korean culture. Here's a sneak peek...
We got the chance to speak with the cast after we saw a preview of the Halloween episode and Ken Jeong -- who is a real life doctor who stars in the show and serves as executive producer talking about the research that went into that storyline to make it authentic as possible. He also revealed that this season, he often consults with his wife to make sure the storylines on the show are as realistic as they can be.
What I loved most about the show and the cast was that all of them were so down to earth and relatable. Ken seems to be like every other dad I know - busy on the weekends with his kids' activities and beaming with pride when they succeed. I especially loved hearing about his daughter who recently won a gymnastics competition. His other daughter seems to want to follow in her dad's footsteps having guest starred on the show twice so far as Dave's stalker.
If you're like me and looking forward to a night on the couch watching your favorite shows, then don't miss "Dr. Ken" which airs Fridays at 8:30pm ET/7:30pm CT on ABC.
