Inspired by the true stories featured in Vox Media Studios’ Epic Magazine, Apple TV+’s Little America is a BAFTA, Independent Spirit, NAACP Image and GLAAD Media Award-nominated series that goes beyond the headlines to look at the funny, romantic, heartfelt, inspiring and surprising stories of immigrants in America, when they’re more relevant now than ever.
Hailing from executive producers Emmy nominee Lee Eisenberg, Academy Award nominees Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, Academy Award winner Siân Heder, Emmy Award winner Alan Yang and Epic Magazine, the second season of the series will explore eight incredible stories inspired by real people from around the world, including a Belizian woman (Stacy Rose) who works for a Hasidic family in New York, a Korean man (Ki Hong Lee) who makes hats for the Black church community in 1980s Detroit, and the story of a 40-something Japanese woman in Columbus, Ohio (Shiori Ideta) whose dream is to assemble an all-women’s baseball league to fulfill her lifelong passion for the sport.
The complete second season will premiere with eight new installments on Friday, December 9.
Little America is written and executive produced by Lee Eisenberg (“CODA,” “The Office,” “Good Boys”), who serves as showrunner, and executive produced by Kumail Nanjiani (“The Big Sick,” “Silicon Valley”), Emily V. Gordon (“The Big Sick”), Alan Yang (“Master of None,” “Parks and Recreation”), Siân Heder (“CODA,” “Tallulah,” “Orange Is the New Black”), Epic Magazine’s Joshuah Bearman (“Argo”), Joshua Davis (“Spare Parts”) and Arthur Spector (“Breaking”). Heder also serves as co-showrunner alongside Eisenberg. The series is produced for Apple TV+ by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
