Storyline

Real American is set in an alternate timeline of our world where aliens came to our planet as refugees and now live among us. They look exactly like us except they have blue markings on their faces and parts of their bodies. Anastasia is one of these aliens, and she uses makeup to hide her markings so she can have a successful career and live a normal life. A business mogul rising in political power starts using the aliens as scapegoats to invigorate his base, and for the first time in her life, Anastasia is afraid that she will be exposed. Told in 10 short episodes, the series explores identity, cultural differences, race, and appropriation in a way that only science fiction can. Real American is a unique female-led sci-fi story starring a Latinx actress and written by diverse screenwriters. Written by L.G.
