Normal Ain't Normal

The Story

Co-produced by Rosario Dawson, Normal Ain’t Normal is a scripted series exploring the struggles, absurdities, and surprising possibilities of working-class people as we come out of the pandemic. Featuring D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai, Martin Sensmeier, Reem Assil, Tristan Cunningham, and Sal Lopez, the show is a bold and irreverent challenging of what is “normal” – and what should be normal – in a healthy society.

After two sold-out premieres at the Oakland Museum in the Bay Area and Creative Artists Agency in Los Angeles, the series is now available to watch on Buzzfeed. Normal Ain’t Normal was directed by Yvan Iturriaga and co-written by Tommy Orange, Reyna Amaya, Josh Healey, Reem Assil, and Iturriaga. We are proud to join with our grassroots partners the National Nurses United, NDN Collective, Sogorea Te’ Land Trust, National Day Laborers Organizing Network, and One Fair Wage to amplify their campaigns and reimagine a new way forward for all.
