AN EPIC TELEVISION SERIES

What if Lincoln had never freed the slaves?

What if the slaves had freed themselves?

About

 "Man In the High Castle"

  meets "Django Unchained" 

An epic revenge fantasy
rife with moral ambiguity...
“New Kongo” is an inverted mirror of today's fractured USA—featuring the South that might have been: where slaves topple a fledgling Confederacy, their modern-day descendants rule, and “Euro-Kongolians” are the disenfranchised.
