Stage 13, the six-time EMMY® award-nominated original content studio, has won a 2020 Shorty Social Good Award for “Best Use of Facebook” for its #stage13supports campaign on Facebook as part of the second season of the fan-favorite Asian food, family and culture streaming series “Family Style.”
The Facebook campaign supported Asian-owned businesses and frontline workers during the pandemic with the cast of season two of “Family Style.” The cast encouraged fans to support Asian restaurants by ordering out, sharing photos of the meals they received, and tagging the businesses. Fans tagged over 100 restaurants from across the country during the six-week campaign, and members of the cast and restaurants in season two helped deliver hundreds of meals to Los Angeles area frontline workers, supporting their work during the pandemic.
The campaign mirrored the theme of community found within both seasons of the series. The eight-episode second season is led by the “Foodie Fam” cast, a group of friends and celebrity guests who explore popular Asian food and restaurants and the traditions and stories surrounding the sharing of both virtual and literal meals. The series was produced by Stage 13 and YOMYOMF (Director Justin Lin’s production company) during the COVID-19 pandemic. Toyota is a returning sponsor of the second season. The twenty-episode series is now streaming for free on Stage13.com, YouTube, and Facebook channels.
In the second season of the award-winning Stage 13 series “Family Style,” the junction of food, family, and storytelling continues. Once again premiering on Stage13.com, Facebook Watch, and YouTube, season two picks up where season one left off as there was so much left on the table – all puns in- tended. Shot before and after the COVID-19 shelter-at-home orders, the series unveils even more family traditions, cooking styles, and cuisine from some unique restaurants and chefs in Southern California who are pushing the envelope in Asian food culture.
