The Ad Council has today launched the next phase of its iconic Emmy-winning Love Has No Labels campaign - a new digital series hosted by award-winning storyteller and filmmaker Jay Shetty.
Building on the recent short film, “Rising
,” which portrayed a diverse but divided neighbourhood struggling to survive rising floodwaters and bias in the heart of America, the new two-part documentary series with Facebook and Great Big Story that expands on the theme: “why does it take a disaster to bring us together?”
The docuseries, produced by Courageous, Great Big Story’s branded content studio, showcases real people who have formed unexpectedly deep connections in the wake of tragedy. In the first episode, Munira and Sara, a Muslim woman and a Jewish woman, share how they overcame their bias in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and formed a long-lasting friendship that helped rebuild their community.
The docuseries will be released across the Great Big Story, Love Has No Labels and Jay Shetty social pages, with a second story set to air in March 2019.
