Plot Synopsis

Created and executive produced by Andrew Phung and Scott Townend, RUN THE BURBS is a half-hour comedy series that follows the Phams, a young, bold Vietnamese-South Asian family taking a different approach to living life to the fullest, while changing the way we think about contemporary family values and life in the burbs. Often the instigators of community events and always the first to know what's going on in the neighborhood, the Phams have become the heart of their cul-de-sac. Through all the challenges and stresses of everyday suburban life, the Phams take on the world as a cohesive unit. Because together, nothing can beat phamily. RUN THE BURBS made its U.S. debut on Monday, July 31, 2023 at 8:30pm ET/PT on The CW.
Season 2 of RUN THE BURBS made its U.S. debut on Thursday, October 26, 2023 at 8:30pm ET/PT on The CW. In the season opener, "In Phocus," Andrew interviews for his dream job in community development; Camille holds a focus group for her business launch.
