COS COB, CT – Marking the first co-production of original content since Chicken Soup for the Soul acquired a majority ownership stake in Ashton Kutcher’s APlus.com last year, the two companies have come together to produce a powerful new documentary digital series called “The New Americans.”

“The New Americans” is an 8-episode series of digital portraits of people who have immigrated to this country, and made America their home. The June series will run throughout Immigrant Heritage Month, with a new episode airing every Monday in June and will wrap up in early July.

Cate Matthews, executive editor, stated “We are thrilled to announce the launch of this series, which has come about from the growing collaboration between Chicken Soup for the Soul and APlus.com. The timing of this series couldn’t be more important. As our culture seems to be putting up walls, Chicken Soup for the Soul and A Plus remain dedicated to telling stories of diversity and inclusion.”
