Not since my perm days as a local TV guy in San Francisco, right?
But Vincent Rodriguez III, born in San Francisco and raised in the Filipino enclave of Daly City, California, wouldn’t have his chance on network TV without Rachel Bloom.
Bloom is seen her taking stage as her name is called for the Critics Choice Award for best actress in a comedy series, CW’s “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.”
But I’d name her best executive producer for insertion of a Filipino American story line in a network series.
And you get to see the great performance of Amy Hill, who plays the Filipino mom. One of the original cast members from Margaret Cho’s “All American Girl,” Hill has endured the scene with her comic genius intact.
To watch “Crazy Ex-Girl Friend” for free (at least until Monday): You can start from the beginning, but my favorite is the Thanksgiving show.
If you’re still snowbound, there’s one good reason to move from east to west—to Daly City, California, West Covina North.
