Q&A with Danny Yourd
PPL is a documentary series exploring the lives and stories of people in America who may otherwise go completely unnoticed. Inspired by short character-based nonfiction such as This American Life, Humans of New York, and ESPN’s 30 for 30, the series features a rich tapestry of real-life characters ranging in age, gender, orientation, race, ethnicity, income, profession, and location.
The pilot follows Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, known simply as "Oz”, who is a self-described wizard who created a life for himself that is truly stranger than fiction. His tale conjures stories of unicorns, mermaids, a serial killer and the most cryptic magic of all: love.
Equal parts touching, laugh-out-loud funny, and gripping, PPL unveils what it means to be human in the 21st century.
