The Village

Series Debut
The drama, which revolves around the close-knit inhabitants of a Brooklyn apartment building, also has a hopeful message to offer alongside its examination of real-world problems. “It was a show that would be very grounded and feel very real, but would have this underlying hopefulness to it, that I think was very important for me to get out there in the world right now,” creator Mike Daniels told EW. “It’s about community. It’s a little strange that that kinda feels revolutionary right now, to tell a show that’s about community and about love and about hope, but doesn’t feel sentimental or schmaltzy. I think they’re very real problems.”
