Little America Season 2 Plot
Inspired by the true stories featured in Epic Magazine, “Little America,” will go 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.
On the TCA panel on the show, executive producer Alan Yang teased that the second season will go beyond the first season in scope and perhaps go “farther back in the past” to select the real immigrant stories which form the basis for the stories told in the series. Yang also joked: “We might do an episode about Harry and Meg.”
Gordon said she would like to see her husband’s story inspire an installment. “Even if he was still an open mike comedian in Chicago like he was when I met him, he is still deserving of a little bit of the Little America story,” Gordon said.
The creative team collectively said that the series would not deal with politics in an overt way. However, they noted that any program that examines the humanity of immigrants sends a political message. In a world of statistics and numbers in the news about the immigrant population, Nanjiani said, “saying an immigrant’s name is sort of a weird political statement… every single (number) is a person, a human being…Maybe the show makes (the immigrant) debate seem a little more concrete or real or personal.”
