The entire first season of “Little America,” an immigrant anthology series created by Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, is now available to stream on Apple TV+.
The show features 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.Zachary Quinto, known for “Star Trek,” stars in the fourth episode, and other cast members include Jearnest Corchado, John Ortiz, Angela Lin, Kai To, Sophia Xu, Shaun Toub, Shila Vosough Ommi, Eshan Inamdar, Priyanka Bose, and Conphidance.
Show creators 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. Eisenberg this week signed a multi-year content deal with Apple.
The series has received largely positive reviews from critics, who have called it the best Apple TV+ show yet. “Little America” has already been renewed for season 2.
