From the team behind the Peabody Award winning series, “Brick City,” “Jersey Strong” is a Newark-based docu-soap chronicles that the lives of two families from parallel universes — the street and the executive suite. Former Blood gang member, Jayda, and former Crip gang member, Creep, are raising two kids while pursuing their careers and following their dreams.
Jayda is working to build mentorship programs for young women in Newark, while Creep balances a day job in sanitation with his dream of launching a comedy career.
Brooke is a trial attorney balancing the stress of high-stakes litigation with the real life drama of raising two college-aged kids with her partner in life and business – Maggie.
Jersey Strong will explore Newark’s warm center and tough exterior through the eyes of two unconventional families striving to achieve the American Dream.
