My America

Anna Jones 

Written by J.S. Davall and Anna Jones, "My America" is a six-part web series released one-a-day leading up to the November 8 election. It tells the story of Lucian, a black artist and Uber-driver, and Carmine, a retired white police officer visiting his son in Los Angeles. Over the course of a week, each man, seemingly so different, experiences a parallel journey confronting personal and political challenges amidst the contrasting value systems of today’s America. Inspired by the impassioned level of heated debate in the run-up to the election and their own experiences in Uber, J.S. Davall as a driver and Anna Jones as a passenger, "My America" confronts some of the nation's biggest issues on a deeply human level. Through the use of the Uber experience as a chance for unforeseen chance interactions, the show is written for an audience as diverse as its characters,  from a Chinese mother refusing to vote to a white Democrat concerned about racist remarks on his mixed race children.
