JERSEY STRONG (PIVOT, 2013) 
From the team behind the Peabody Award winning series “Brick City,” this Newark based docu-soap chronicles the lives of two families from parallel universes — the street and the executive suite. Reformed Blood (Jayda) and Crip (Creep) are a modern-day Romeo and Juliet romance in the hood - raising two kids while pursuing their careers and following their dreams. Jayda is working to build mentorship programs for young women in Newark, while Creep balances a day job in sanitation with his dream of launching a comedy career. Brooke, a trial attorney who once kept Jayda out of jail, is balancing the stress of high stakes litigation with the real life drama of raising two college-aged kids with her partner in life and business, Maggie. “Jersey Strong” will explore Newark’s warm center and tough exterior through the eyes of two unconventional families striving to achieve the American Dream.
