Ivy & Julie is set in 1976 San Francisco and centers around 10-year-old Ivy, a Chinese-American girl who struggles with finding a balance between her two cultural identities: Chinese and American.
Yeo will play Marilyn Ling, a strict, but loving mother to Ivy. As a first-generation Chinese-American, Marilyn raises her three children to embrace Chinese traditions and values. Between being the perfect mom and acing her law classes, Marilyn in many ways can relate to Ivy and her struggle to find balance. The special will follow Ivy, her family’s Chinese traditions and obligations, and how she wishes to be like her all-American best friend, Julie Albright. When her gymnastics tournament and family’s big Chinese New Year dinner land on the same day, Ivy relies on Julie to guide her with a difficult choice.
