VIDEO: First Look - truTV's Upcoming Comedic Documentary THE PROBLEM WITH APU
truTV debuted today the trailer for its upcoming comedic documentary, THE PROBLEM WITH APU. Comedian Hari Kondabolu, the creator and star of this feature-length documentary, confronts his long-standing "nemesis" Apu Nahasapeemapetilon - better known as the Indian convenience store owner on The Simpsons. Through this comedic cultural exposé, Kondabolu questions how this controversial caricature was created, burrowed its way into the hearts and minds of Americans and continues to exist - intact - 27 years later.
Produced by Marobru, Inc. and Avalon Television, The Problem with Apu will debut on truTV this fall.
