Another problematic statue. Peacock, April 22.
This comedy from star Ed Helms, Michael Schur
(The Good Place), and Sierra Teller Ornelas explores the conflicts of the non-Indigenous and Indigenous members of a small town, heightened by a proposal to move a statue of the town’s white founder. The show boasts a largely Indigenous writing staff, including Ornelas, who is Navajo and acts as showrunner, and prominently features Indigenous actors, such as the charming Jana Schmieding.
