Disney has released a new trailer for “Algiers, America”, which is a five-part multi-series documentary that chronicles the journey of Coach Brice Brown, the Edna Karr Cougars, and their quest for a fifth state championship in six years.

The Edna Karr High School football team is the pride of the Algiers neighborhood of New Orleans, earning four
state championships in the last five years. The predominantly Black team and coaching staff are among the nation’s
best. Every year at least a dozen seniors from the school receive full scholarships to play football at division one
colleges. And then there is the most important distinction: almost all the players have lost teammates, friends, and
family to gun violence or prison.
To Coach Brice Brown, whose father was murdered on the streets of Algiers, winning is not the most crucial part of
his job. His priority is keeping his players alive until they graduate – filling in as the father many players are missing,
instilling a team spirit, and guiding them through their lives in a dangerous and fragile environment.
As guns become the country’s leading cause of child deaths, Algiers, America provides a rare and authentic, candid, and captivating portrait of a community fighting to stem the tide. This series will at once break your heartand inspire you with its unforgettable characters and tribute to possibility.
