The first trailer for Little America, Apple’s anthology series about immigrants, is finally here, and it might just be the antidote we need for these wildly divisive impeachment days.

Clocking in at just over two minutes, the Little America trailer starts with a round table discussion among immigrants from various nations talking about things you’ll only see in America. The trailer then dives into glimpses from the eight different episodes that show the uniqueness of all immigrant stories.

Check it out:

Co-created by Kumail Nanjiani and Emily Gordon of Big Sick fame, Little America “goes beyond the headlines to bring to life the funny, romantic, heartfelt and surprising stories of immigrants in America.” The first season debuts on Apple TV+ on January 17, 2020. Apple has already signed on for a second season.

Little America season one

The first season will be comprised of eight episodes that are 30 minutes long. Lee Eisenberg from The Office wrote the screenplay which was inspired by true stories published in Epic Magazine. Some of the casts include Zachary Quinto, Jearnest Corchado, John Ortiz, Angela Lin, Kai To, Sophia Xu, Shaun Toub, Shila Vosough Ommi, Eshan Inamdar, Priyanka Bose and Conphidance.

Little America will be the first anthology series on Apple TV+. Steve Spielberg is working to resurrect his sci-fi anthology series Amazing Stories for Apple TV+ but it hasn’t been given a premiere date yet. Apple TV+ has slowly added new content since the service launched last month. Truth Be Told and M. Night Shyamalan’s series Servant were added recently to go with Golden Globe nominee The Morning Show, See, For All Mankind and Dickinson.
