‘Little America,’ Big Debut

Little America, which has already been renewed for a second season ahead of its series premiere, debuts eight half-hour episodes this Friday, January 17, on Apple TV+.

Based on true stories from Epic Magazine, the anthology series tells “the funny, romantic, heartfelt and surprising stories of immigrants to America.”

Episodes include:

“The Manager” – A 12-year-old must run a Utah motel on his own when his parents are deported back to India.

“The Jaguar” – An undocumented Mexican teenager tackles the rarefied world of competitive squash.

“The Cowboy” – An economic graduate student from a small Nigerian village adjusts to life in Oklahoma by embracing cowboy culture.

“The Rock” – A rock stands in the way of an Iranian man’s effort to build a home for his family in Yonkers, but he will not be deterred.

Lee Eisenberg wrote and executive produced the series. Silicon Valley’s Kumail Nanjiani also served as an executive producer.

Apple TV+ costs $4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial. The service streams on tv.apple.com, via the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch and Mac, and on other non-Apple platforms.
