Who is this really cool Asian-American character — you know, who is bad at school?
Produced and directed by Ding, “The Claudia Kishi Club” streams on Netflix along with “The Baby-Sitters Club” — the platform’s reboot of the 1990 HBO series.
In the new show, Claudia (played by Momona Tamada) is as Claudia always was: an interesting and popular kid who, oh, by the way, just happens to be Japanese-American.
Not just celebrating my love for the character, but approaching that through the lens of Asian-American creators who grew up with the character” and, ultimately, felt inspired by her.
Someone at Netflix saw “The Claudia Kishi Club” and reached out to acquire it.
