In the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, America Divided, the EPIX Original limited docu-series with executive producers Norman Lear, Common and Shonda Rhimes, features narratives around inequality in education, housing, healthcare, labor, criminal justice and the political system - all woven into an eight-story, five-part series. The show follows high-profile correspondents such as Common, Rosario Dawson, America Ferrera, Zach Galifianakis, Norman Lear, Amy Poehler, Peter Sarsgaard, and Jesse Williams as they explore aspects of inequality related to their own biographies.
This series cuts to the heart of the inequality crisis, exploring life-and-death struggles around the economic,
social and political divide. Our aim is to expose the damage extreme inequality inflicts on all Americans, reveal
its systemic causes, and celebrate real-world heroes fighting for solutions.
