In this sitcom, comedian Aziz Ansari of Parks and Recreation fame plays Dev, a young actor struggling to get his career started while living in New York. In the first season of the series, Dev encounters career hurdles such as racial stereotyping - Dev is Indian-American, and his parents are first-generation immigrants to the United States - cynical producers, and silly projects, and in his personal life, he has to deal with his difficult parents and a shaky romantic life. In the series second season, which debuted in May 2017, Dev makes some big changes to try to get his life on the path he thinks it should be on. His new situation includes a big change of scenery, significant career redirection, and a seismic shake-up in his personal and romantic lives. The series is written and produced by Ansari, and at times, it mirrors situations in his own life, including the inclusion of his own real-life parents in the roles of his parents on the series.
