Currently in development, we are in talks with the Philippine government and the
department of tourism about filming part of the show in country. This gritty crime drama will show the Concepcion family and the trials they face as immigrants establishing themselves in the United States.
A story that should ring true for immigrants from all countries that have integrated to American culture. Award winning
director/producer Craig Obligacion Wilson and award winning writer Lynn Harrod have specifically chosen to set the back drop for this series during the heated race riots of Los Angeles that caused the city to struggle with defining its own identity.
Much like The Godfather or The Sopranos,
The world of Concepcion will focus on family dealing with extreme circumstances.
O.H.P. actively embraces this opportunity to showcase these diverse talents.
