“Mo Najjar straddles the line between two cultures, three languages and a ton of bullshit as a Palestinian refugee constantly living one step away from asylum on the path to U.S. citizenship.
His family — including his resilient and spiritual mother, sister and older brother — flee to Houston, Texas. Laughing the pain away, Mo learns to adapt to his new world though getting ahead in life comes with several setbacks.”
The two creators of the show have previously worked together on Ramy, another comedy-drama series revolving around immigrant households.
Mo struggles with his career, faith and his identity in the dramatic, yet humorous clips for the show. He does his best to provide for his family, carve his own identity and adapt to changing conditions in this socially and politically charged drama.
