Producer And Director Julliet Pan Signs Production Deal With Los Angeles Beijing Studios
Writer, director and producer Julliet Pan, with her newly formed company SHE & JUL Media U.S., has signed a production and distribution deal with Los Angeles Beijing Studios (LABS). They will distribute Pan's upcoming series "Steamy Kitchen" which she created and stars in.

Understanding the nuances between the American and Chinese cultures, Pan is now focused on her career in Los Angeles. Pan states "I am very excited to work with LABS, a company that truly embodies bi-continental art and culture in Film and TV. I envision a strong creative collaboration."
LABS COO and China - US distribution veteran, Steve Chicorel, commented, "Bridging China and US cultures is what we do so having Julliet and her experience across both cultures, leading the creative, I'm sure will result in the sort of international and ethnic diversity that is needed in today's programming and refreshing for US audiences."
Pan also produced, wrote and directed "The Lane," a dramedy TV show about five expats living together in an old lane house in the middle of the local townspeople. The show was the first of its kind in China and Pan is currently working on a U.S. version of the show.
