Ronny Chieng: International Student

ABC Commercial's acclaimed comedy series Ronny Chieng: International Student was honoured as the Best Programme Acquisition at the 2018 Broadcast Digital Awards in London last night. Acquired by BBC Three last year and currently licenced to partners in over 40 territories including Comedy Central and CBC, judges hailed the series as a ‘very clever acquisition’ and 'standout piece,' highlighting its diverse cast, hilarious universal themes and outstanding broadcast and digital performance. The series launched on BBC Three in October 2017, and has since had more than 1.2 million total downloads (Source: Broadcast Now).

Meet Ronny Chieng (The Daily Show): a Malaysian student who’s come to Australia to study law. Smart, driven and competitive, Ronny would be the perfect law student, if only he actually wanted to be a lawyer. Unafraid to cut through the BS, it’s not long before he’s at odds with most people on campus, including the rowdy Aussies, Mah-jong playing Asians and blue blooded idiots.
