Company You Keep Trailer Reveals Milo Ventimiglia's Korean Drama Adaptation
The Company You Keep trailer reveals the first look at Milo Ventimiglia's adaptation of the hit Korean series My Fellow People.
The first The Company You Keep trailer reveals Milo Ventimiglia's K-drama adaptation. The Company You Keep is set to premiere on ABC, based on the hit Korean TV series My People, which aired in 2019. Showrunners and executive producers Julia Cohen and Phil Klemmer wrote the script, while Crazy Rich Asians filmmaker Jon M. Jon M. Chu also co-wrote the script and was on board as showrunner and producer. Known for his various television roles, including Jess in Gilmore Girls and Jack in This Is Us, Ventimiglia also serves as an executive producer.
Now, ABC has dropped a trailer for The Company You Keep, giving fans a sneak peek at what to expect from Milo Ventimiglia's Korean drama adaptation. The trailer introduces viewers to Charlie, Ventimiglia's professional con man, and Emma (Katherine Henna King), an undercover CIA agent. The two met naturally and made flirtatious jokes, but lied about their professions to protect themselves. Charlie claims he's a yoga teacher and Emma says she's a beauty queen turned rocket scientist. Despite their joking admissions of their real professions, both laughed it off, though it's clear their secret won't be hidden for long. Check out the trailer below:
Everything To Know About The Company You Keep
Company You Keep will follow Ventimiglia criminal Charlie and lawman Emma as their casual, one-night affair turns into love. Unknowingly, the two have passed each other. Charlie plans to leave his dangerous "family business" and is on the run from the same vengeful criminal Emma is investigating in the CIA. According to the show's synopsis, the pair will need to confront their own demons and lies "so they can save themselves and their families from disastrous consequences."
"My Fellow Citizens", which aired on the Korean broadcasting system, had a similar storyline, seeing a professional crook accidentally marry a policeman. Hollywood's adaptation of The Company You Keep has achieved word-of-mouth and ratings success overseas, suggesting a budding interest in Korean content coming to American screens. While the trailer is brief, it looks like Charlie and Emma will continue their relationship despite working for opposing sides. However, their ill-fated romance seems to work in their favor as they realize how they can help each other.
The Company You Keep has an ensemble cast that includes William Fichtner as Leo, fellow con artist and steelworker, and Tim Chiou as David, Emma's brother and running for senator re-elected. Freda Foh Shen will also star as Grace, James Saito as Joseph, Sarah Wayne Callies as Birdie, Felisha Terrell as Daphne and Polly Draper as Fran. Based on the plot, characters and new trailer, The Company You Keep will be as exciting as its source material. However, only time will tell if it can live up to its K-drama predecessor, My Brothers, when it premieres on ABC on February 19.
