On Monday, Comedy Central released the official trailer for Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens, the highly-anticipated sitcom created by and starring rapper-actress Awkwafina.

Inspired by Awkwafina’s real-life experiences growing up in Flushing, Queens, Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens follows twentysomething Nora Lin (Awkwafina) as she attempts to find a purpose in her life and clumsily navigate her way through young adulthood. All while she still lives with her dad (BD Wong) and possibly over-supportive grandmother (Lori Tan Chinn).

In the trailer, which you can watch below, Nora sobs as she confides in her friend Chenise (Makeda Declet). “I wish I had purpose like you, you dumb b****,” she cries. So it’s time for Nora to find a suitable job, but if it were just that easy, Nora wouldn’t exactly be where she is now. After all, as she tells her cousin (Bowen Yang), she doesn’t even know her social security number.

Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens is executive produced by Nora “Awkwafina” Lum, Karey Dornetto, Lucia Aniello, Teresa Hsiao, Peter Principato and Itay Reiss of Artists First. Sarah Babineau and Rachel Olson are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central. The series also boasts a predominantly female and diverse slate of directors, including the aforementioned Lucia Aniello (“Broad City”), Natasha Lyonne (“Russian Doll”), Jamie Babbit (“But I’m a Cheerleader”), the Daniels (“Swiss Army Man”), Steven Tsuchida (“Younger”), and Anu Valia (“The Other Two”).

Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens premieres on Comedy Central on Wednesday, January 22 (at 10:30 PM ET/PT).
