Bai Ling (The Crow, Crank: High Voltage, Lord of Shanghai) co-stars with Tom Sizemore in the new comedy series, ‘Barbee Rehab‘, premiering on Tubi. Ling plays Chinese Barbee, a patient at a mental facility for people who are addicted to the Mattel dolls that actually start to believe they are the play things.
In our interview, Ling speaks candidly about growing up in Communist China, the freedom she has to create here in the United States, coming from a family of artists and working in lower budgeted projects where she is even more artistically liberated.
This 7-part, limited series follows a patient (Tom Sizemore, Twin Peaks : The Return, Heat, Saving Private Ryan), who is on the verge of being locked up after claiming to have discovered a rehab facility focused on treating people who are obsessed with collecting and/or living as real life Barbie and Ken dolls. He shares his unbelievable stories about the unstable staff and patients who suffer from a variety of outrageous Barbie and Ken doll addictions, with his psychiatrist, (Janice Dickinson). Will he convince her this is a real place, or will he end up in the nuthouse? Welcome to ‘Barbee Rehab‘, where reality, imagination, delusion and perversion collide.
Celebrity Rehab meets Big Brother meets Plastic in a riotous new small-screen offering from Writer, Director and Producer Derek S.Orr and Producer, Writer, Set and Costume Designer Vanessa Bednar.
