Apple Shares Trailer for Upcoming Apple TV+ Show 'Little America'

Apple today shared the first trailer for "Little America," an immigrant anthology series created by Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon.

Set to launch on Friday, January 17, 2020, the show will feature eight half hour episodes that each focus on a different story, from a 12-year-old who has to run a Utah motel on his own after his parents are deported back to India to a Nigerian grad student who becomes a cowboy.


Nanjiani and Gordon are best known for "The Big Sick," and each story in the series they've created is based on a real life tale pulled from Epic Magazine.

Lee Eisenberg, known for his work on "The Office," is writing and executive producing the show alongside Nanjiani and Gordon. "Master of None" co-creator Alan Yang is also an executive producer.

Zachary Quinto, known for "Star Trek," will star in the fourth episode, and other cast members will include Jearnest Corchado, John Ortiz, Angela Lin, Kai To, Sophia Xu, Shaun Toub, Shila Vosough Ommi, Eshan Inamdar, Priyanka Bose, and Conphidance. Though not launching until January, "Little America" has already been renewed for a second season.

Came here for the toxic comments and wasn’t disappointed. Would you all be happier if it was only about white immigrants?

This series and the newest one announced by apple are the reasons I refuse to pay for Apple+. Stay out of politics and concentrate on making devises. Apples activism will hurt their bottomline.
In what world is telling immigrants stories politics? It's only political if you see them as less than human.

Maybe there is some truth in the comments, thus your expectations being correct.
Nope, sadly, it’s just easy to predict these days what kind of things are going to have the comments section be brigaded by posters from /r/The_Donald.

What exactly is political about this show? I didn’t get anything from the trailer.
Knee-jerk reactions by the visual of a black cowboy.

Ask MR why they put it in the politics section then? Are the MR moderators less than human?
It’s almost like they’re aware that some who post here will spew garbage about this series for no reason other than the stories are those of immigrants. See above.

Does the show come with a tiny violin for me to play while watching?
Not sure where you’re getting that these are sob stories.
