From a media release:
The Quon Dynasty: Canada’s favourite restaurateur family returns
The Quon Dynasty, a new television series for Rogers Broadcasting Ltd, begins production this week in Edmonton. The 13 half-hour episodes will follow the colourful exploits of the Quon family, proprietors of Edmonton’s legendary Lingnan restaurant.
Canada first fell in love with the Quons on AnaÃ¯d Production’s award-winning series The Family Restaurant. Now, with a new title and a new broadcaster, executive producer Margaret Mardirossian looks forward to expanding the view of this amazing family. â€œThe restaurant obviously dominates much of their lives,â€ she explains, â€œbut we’re no longer tied to food as an ever-present theme. We’re excited to see where their story takes us this year!â€
Production officially kicks off on Saturday, July 10 at 2:00 p.m., with a traditional Chinese Big Luck Ceremony at the Lingnan (10582 – 104 St). The Quon Dynasty airs on Citytv, OMNI, and The Biography Channel beginning Spring 2011.
