Teddy meets MC-DRILL-ME. (It's a good thing.)

Nice

Nice is a ½ hour series about Teddy Park, a 20-something fantasy football obsessed Korean American woman living in Minnesota. Teddy has tried to live her life as a typical “nice” Minnesotan girl. However, after she finds out that her breast cancer diagnosis has recurred, she decides to throw that Minnesota Nice to the wind — to become the biggest asshole in the state. But, in doing so, Teddy withdraws from everyone, and especially from her older sister, Hana (who is also preparing for her wedding). Throughout the series, Teddy’s friends and family begin to confront her secretive and unpleasant behavior throughout this high stakes coming-of-age story.

Created and written by Naomi Ko, directed by Andrew Ahn, produced by Carolyn Mao.

An official selection at 2018 Tribeca Film Festival, 2018 New Orleans Film Festival, 2018 San Diego Asian Film Festival.

Winner of the Audience Award in Episodic at the 2018 New Orleans Film Festival.
