MISS AMERICA is a nonpartisan documentary series that profiles the untold personal stories of women in politics today.
From first time candidates to Senators in the national spotlight, each episode will explore the stark contrast between the reality of entrenched power structures, and the aspirations of the women that endeavor to change them.
In a time of polarized partisanship and unprecedented political upheaval in our nation, women on both sides of the aisle are risking it all by prioritizing solutions for their constituents over towing a party line.
MISS AMERICA will be a documentary series that will look like no other. The intent is to make the profiled politicians relatable.
This series will break down gender stereotypes, highlight the women behind the policies, and showcase their distinct individualities as powerful women.
Each of these women have a story that needs to be told.
45 min per episode.
Stories will be self-narrated, and intercut with on camera interviews/interviews with political allies, relatives, etc.
Locations: Washington DC and small State districts around the country.
Profile one political figure per episode.
Interchange Democrats/Republicans, keeping the show nonpartisan.
Each episode will chart the relationship between the personal and the professional, as well as how each one influences the other.
By getting to know the individual, we aim to gain a clearer understanding of their politics.
The $25,000 Raised from GoFundMe, will be used to shoot the pilot episode of MISS AMERICA.
The funds raised will go towards the following:

"MISS AMERICA is my personal call to action. We are creating a show where these women can just exist without being reduced to a one dimensional archetype. As humans we fundamentally look for reasons to relate and connect with each other, this show will strive to find that commonality despite our differences.
"The media is both the message and the messenger," it delivers content that shapes our society and our politics. The images of women in the media today limits women's sense of efficacy, their sense of agency, and their sense of what might be possible for them. We hope to change that with this show"
Christina McDowell - Producer

McDowell has worked as an op-ed writer and public policy analyst for Robert Weiner, former Clinton and Bush White House spokesman, and is the co-producer alongside Academy Award nominated producer, Matthew Cooke's new documentary film, "Survivor's Guide to Prison."
"Growing up, my mother worked on Capitol Hill for a Republican and then later, a Democrat. From a young age, I listened to stories of what it was like for her to work for the government during the 1970’s and 80’s, and the barriers she faced simply because she was a woman. I feel incredibly inspired by the never-before-seen numbers of women running for Office today and want nothing more than to tell each of their stories in hopes of inspiring a younger generation of women to believe that anything is possible."
