What does Netflix have to say about Golden?

Michelle Lee, VP editorial and publishing for Netflix, told The Hollywood Reporter, “There’s been this awesome flywheel [effect] within entertainment and culture where it’s not just API screenwriters or authors getting something produced [but also] directors of the community hiring actors of the community. We have so many more wonderful, nuanced stories to tell. We know the audience is there, and truly the purpose of Golden is to be that platform to celebrate and champion our community.”

About Golden

The social media accounts were launched by sharing a 95-second video where famous actors from the Asian community talk about the platform and what it stands for.

In the video, stars like Tan France, Frieda Pinto, Richa Moorjani, Kevin Kreider and Kane Lim can be seen saying, “The Asians are here. This is where we all come together. This is where we push each other, where we learn from each other, but above all, we celebrate each other. Because this space belongs to all of us.”

The channels show a few projects that are already in the pipeline.

They currently have an ongoing series called Spill The Boba Tea, where celebrities make custom boba drinks and have a heart-to-heart with Philip Wang, who is the co-founder of Bopomofo Cafe. The next guest on his list is Emily in Paris star Ashley Park.
