The Emmy-winning “Love Has No Labels” campaign for Ad Council has entered its next phase with a digital series that builds on the campaign’s recent short film, Rising.  The new two-part documentary series is being released by Ad Council with Facebook and Great Big Story, expanding upon the theme “why does it take a disaster to bring us together?”

The Rising docuseries, produced by Courageous, Great Big Story’s branded content studio, showcases real people who have formed unexpectedly deep connections in the wake of tragedy. In this first episode, Munira and Sara, a Muslim woman and a Jewish woman, share how they overcame their bias in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and formed a long-lasting friendship that helped rebuild their community.

Hosted by storyteller and filmmaker Jay Shetty, the docuseries--directed by Michael Southworth--is being released across the Great Big Story, Love Has No Labels and Jay Shetty social pages, with a second story set to air in March 2019. Like the rest of this campaign, it was created in partnership with R/GA.
