Take a selfie with kinky gear, or get frisky & take a spanking from Mistress Yin (Poppy Liu).
Mercy Mistress follows the character Mistress Yin, played by Poppy Liu, as a queer, first-gen, Chinese-American professional and lifestyle dominatrix in Manhattan. Written & created by BDSM educator Yin Q, the first season is directed entirely by Amanda Madden, and produced by a primarily woman-led crew, with support of the POC, Asian American, queer, and kink communities. The show simultaneously explores immigrant life, stories of Asian culture in America, the struggles and challenges of sex workers, and authentic experiences in the kink world.
Margaret Cho could be called the “Queen of all Media” having conquered the worlds of film, television, books, music and theatre. She has five Grammy Award nominations and one Emmy nod for her groundbreaking work on 30 Rock. Rolling Stone magazine named Cho one of the 50 Best Stand-Up Comics calling her “the sort of funny, sex-positive feminist and LGBT activist younger comics continue to look up to.” Now, along with her production partners--Sarah Martin and Jessie Boemper, Margaret Cho has joined Mercy Mistress as Executive Producers, along with their frequent collaborator, Evan Shapiro.
