“The Quon Dynasty is a hilariously relatable series that showcases the real-life comedy that comes with being part of a family,” commented Claire Freeland, Director of Development and Production. “As zany and diverse as the Quons may be, everyone can admit to having a ‘Quon’ in their clan.”   
 
Welcome to The Quon Dynastyan Edmonton institution beloved by its countless regular customers, cozy and elegant but quaintly out of date. The dynasty is currently ruled (at least officially) by Kinman, the “emperor” who everyone suspects is a little “out of touch.” Next in line is his heir and oldest son Miles, who’s dying to get his turn on the throne. Waiting in the wings are Mandy, the poised, beautiful “princess,” and Marty, the self-absorbed, younger brother. Reigning over them all is the formidable mother, Amy, a domineering “empress” who holds the dynasty together but also drives everyone crazy. The pressure of running the restaurant often dominates the Quons’ lives, generating frustration, friction and exhaustion, but in the end it is also what brings the family together.
 
The Quon Dynastyis produced by Anaïd Productions Inc. in association with Rogers Broadcasting Limited, the Assistance of the Government of Alberta, Alberta Multimedia Development Fund, and the participation of Government of Canada - Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit Program as well as the Canada Media Fund.
