to be determined
A reluctant historian is thrown out of her element when her acclaimed book about the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 is optioned by a larger-than-life Hollywood mogul with a track record for making smash-hit TV shows. The professional bleeds into the personal when she finds herself weighing the historical facts against her own awakening ambitions. In a hilarious workplace comedy with teeth, tensions rise and deals are made and broken.
Exclusion is sponsored by Beth Newburger Schwartz with additional support provided by Linda A. Baumann, Jeffrey M. Busch and David Bruce Smith and the Grateful American Foundation.
