Along with the Afghan-American Foundation- AAF, the MPAC Hollywood Bureau is proud to present a conversation with Los Angeles Times TV Critic Lorraine Ali and the writers, actors, and producers of CBS's prime time comedy United States of Al. In light of recent events in Afghanistan, United States of Al is doing an incredible job representing the plight of Afghan refugees and their families to millions of Americans. We’re looking forward to hearing from Fahim Anwar, Azita Ghanizada and BoomGen Studios's Reza Aslan and Mahyad Tousi about their efforts to elevate Afghan and Afghan-American stories through their show.

Our first double feature is PACKED with insights on Chuck Lorre’s latest project, United States of Al! Chuck Lorre eagerly took on the role of executive producer, a man called the “King of sitcoms” and the mastermind behind critically acclaimed series such as: 3rd Rock From The Sun and The Big Bang Theory. How did Mahyed Tousi and Reza Aslan of BoomGen Studios land this unprecedented show with CBS? and WITHOUT settling for anything less than reasonable representation BOTH in front of and BEHIND the camera? Their sitcom, United States of Al, describes the relationship between an Afghan interpreter and a Marine who bring their intimate relationship from Afghanistan to rural Ohio. You’ll laugh, cry, and rethink what you think you know about Afghanistan. United States of Al premieres THIS Thursday at 8:30e/7:30c on CBS. 🔥 Please tune in and vote with your views! 🎤Click the link in the comments to listen or search “Stories of Transformation'' in your favorite podcast app! 💌As always, please be sure to rate and review the podcast so we can continue to serve transformational stories to your inbox, every week.
