I’m thrilled to share this great Deadline article about The Scapegoat, an anthology limited series that I’m developing in collaboration with showrunner Barry Schkolnick and producer Brian Tee. This series is dedicated to exploring the harrowing stories of people who were unjustly accused of things they never did as a way of manipulating national conversations about everything from loyalty to country to feminism and even the AIDS crisis.

I’m honored to contribute to adapting the true story of Iva Toguri, a young Japanese American woman wrongfully convicted of treason for committing war crimes as the infamous radio propagandist “Tokyo Rose” during World War II. The series, exploring universal tales of resilience, is supported by the Japanese Americans Citizens League, a group of dedicated to shedding light on the injustices faced by Japanese Americans and bringing justice to Iva for her unconscionable treatment during and after the war.

This series will showcase the complicated moral choices making up our country’s history while humanizing the people who were wrongly vilified.
