We wanted to focus ion the immigrants doing everyday life [UNKNOWN].
Little America is an [UNKNOWN] inspired by the true story of immigrants in the US.
Here is the thing it's not about telling like immigrant story, these are human stories that feature immigrants.
When you get to know someone and start to see your struggles and their struggles, your passions and theirs, your problems and theirs.
They stop being the other.
I, along with my partners Emily Gordon, Lee Eisenberg, Alan Yang at Epic magazine wanted to make a show that did just that.
Because ultimately we're all looking for the same thing.
Meaning, love, like the emotional story of a young Indian boy living in New Cha, whose parents achieve the American dream of running their own motel until they were suddenly deported.
12 year old Kunal wasn't going to let his parent's dream die.
So this young boy secretly ran the motel for the next 10 years on his own, while simultaneously plotting his quest to get his parents back to the US.
Okay true story, he competed in the national spelling bee so that he could meet First Lady Laura Bush.
And asked for help and he came in 13th and he actually got to meet her.
Little America will cover the full range of human emotions.
Some episodes are funny, some are romantic, some are thrilling, They feature immigrants from Iran, Syria, Nigeria, Mexico and more.
And are set all over America from Texas to Oklahoma to California.
The majority of the writers and directors are either immigrants or the children of immigrants.
On set one of our actors said to Emily, I've been acting for decades but I've never gotten to be in every scene.
How awesome is that?
We hope little America will help viewers understand that there is no such thing as the other, there is only us.
Which is why at this moment in history we are excited that we get to tell these stories with Apple.
Connecting humanity is in their DNA.
The immigrant dream is the American dream.
Connecting through our stories will give us a better understanding of each other.
An understanding that allows us to live together Eat each other's food, maybe learn some fun new ways of swearing and that is the America I was promised.
We can't wait for you to see our little America.
