SHIFTING BIPOC REPRESENTATION

​Numerous BIPOC people are the recipients of violent discrimination. 

 

How underrepresented individuals are presented in the media either feeds cultural myopia contributing to our inability to bridge racial divides that plague society or transforms dangerous, racialized stereotypes and positively shapes how we are handled, and often mishandled, on a global scale.

THE SHOW'S IMPACT

This series ushers in a new genre of conscious-reality TV, offering a positive, family-friendly, and immensely entertaining depiction of BIPOC ex-pats, combating misrepresentation. 

 

We tackle tough, yet relatable, issues while breaking stereotypes and increasing the representation of expats of color.

We hope that this show inspires viewers to travel and live abroad in a similar manner that A Different World inspired a generation to pursue higher education.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

AMAZON CUSTOMER (USA)

The entire Ingram family is fun to watch and relatable. I love seeing each of their own personalities shine through. But what I liked the most is seeing how this All American family keeps it real and how they handle and deal with real life situations...I am crowning them the First Family of reality entertainment. Bravo Ingram Family!

PRODUCERS SAY

I love this show!! I’m a TV producer in Los Angeles and let me just tell you, we need a show like this gracing the screen. It’s cute, funny, uplifting, raw, brilliant tv! In a world where black families need better role models like we had with the Cosby’s - this show is the next gen of that. Kudos!

Juanita speaking to media about the show

RADICALLY TRANSFORMING REALITY TV

Black-casted unscripted TV, directly combating the distorted representation of  BIPOC  people globally.

 

Its “edutainment” approach to production and presentation dismantles dangerous racialized stereotypes through its positive and entertaining cross-cultural depictions of Black Americans thriving abroad and is leading the way for inclusivity.

“It is vital that we control our own narrative when depicting our journey.

"I wanted to ensure that we gave a genuine and authentic depiction of the experiences shared in this series.” 
Ingram sought to achieve this both on screen and behind the camera.

"Being African-American and choosing to live abroad is always steeped in change and navigating through the unexpected, but today the racial and viral pandemics have placed the topic of living as an expat front and center.
 
This series tackles tough and relatable issues in an educational yet entertaining way all while breaking stereotypes and increasing a more inclusive representation of expats of color."
