‘Fresh Off the Boat’ Episode Guide (April 18): Louis and Jessica Groom Their Kids to Become the Next Tiger Woods

“The Masters” (04/18/17) – Upon learning that Tiger Woods is half Thai, Louis and Jessica get inspired to groom Eddie and Evan into becoming the next great Asian golf prodigies. Jessica believes that a strict, rigorous training regimen is the recipe for success, while Louis thinks a more relaxed approach will yield stronger results.

So, they put their differing parenting styles to the test and make a friendly bet to see who can develop the better golfer. Meanwhile, Emery is determined to publicize the fact that Tiger Woods is half Asian, on an all-new episode of ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat,” airing on TUESDAY, APRIL 18 (9:00-9:30 p.m. EDT).

Guest starring in this episode are Prophet Bolden as Walter, Trevor Larcom as Trent, Dash Williams as Brian, Evan Hannemann as Barefoot Dave, David Goldman as Principal Hunter, Tim Baltz as Ted, Ted Jonas as Phil, Luke Grakal as Bill, Jordan Shellow as Cory, Marlowe Peyton as Reba, Elyse Cole as Stacy and others TBD.

“The Masters” was written by Rachna Fruchbom and directed by Phil Traill.

Set in the mid-‘90s, 11-year-old hip-hop loving Eddie Huang (Hudson Yang) and his family are adjusting to their new lives in suburban Orlando. New schools, new friends, new neighbors…new traditions, yet still maintaining true to their family values and their continual pursuit of the American Dream.

Dad, Louis (Randall Park), moved his family from Chinatown in Washington D.C. and turned the once struggling “Cattleman’s Ranch” into a successful steakhouse fully equipped with a mechanical bull. Mom, Jessica (Constance Wu), has found her own success as a real-estate agent yet still finds time to shop the bargain bin for back to school clothes and bond with next door neighbor Honey (Chelsey Crisp) over cocktails and Stephen King novels.

Meanwhile, Eddie is growing up and becoming more independent, sometimes defying his overbearing mother’s old-school parenting style, but eventually realizes that she’s got nothing but love for him and his brothers. Emery (Forrest Wheeler), the middle child and hopeless romantic, has no problem with the ladies, including the rollerblading stay-at-home moms in the neighborhood and often conspires with baby brother Evan (Ian Chen), the mama’s boy.

Inspired by a true story, “Fresh Off the Boat” stars Randall Park as Louis, Constance Wu as Jessica, Hudson Yang as Eddie, Forrest Wheeler as Emery, Ian Chen as Evan and Chelsey Crisp as Honey.

“Fresh Off the Boat” was written by Nahnatchka Khan, who also serves as executive producer. Jake Kasdan and Melvin Mar are executive producers. The series is produced by 20th Century Fox Television. It is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC’s selected HDTV format with 5.1 channel surround sound.
