Synopsis


TELEVISION SERIES - PITCHING STAGE

Set in 2008, Miracle, New York is a half-hour romantic-dramedy about a flailing 24-year-old NYU lit student and a charming undocumented busboy who fall in love in an increasingly out-of-reach New York City.


Told in six episode seasons, the series has the old-school romance of 'Annie Hall' chopped up and folded into the droll editorial of Anthony’s Bourdain’s 'Kitchen Confidential'. While following in the footsteps of streamer series like 'LOVE' and 'Ramy'.

It’s a rom-com about food, unsung hard work, and who really gets a shot at the so-called American Dream.

But more than anything, Miracle, New York is a true story about first love, and how it’s stronger than just about anything.
