State of the Re:Union has set out to explore how a particular American city or town creates community, the ways people transcend challenging circumstances and the vital cultural narratives that give an area its uniqueness.
We initially took creative and conscious cues from the iconic shows that have inspired us. From the scenic road, simple-pleasure sensibilities of Charles Kuralt’s On the Road and the investigatory spirit of 60 Minutes to the aesthetic and music-fueled backdrop of MTV and do-it-yourself spirit of Current TV, these things have moved us to create a show where neither artistry or content are ever compromised for one another.
From this, we found our own voice and style and were fueled by the incredible stories we’ve been made aware of. As Al says, each episode is like a love letter to America.
