Amsterdam Ave. tells the story of two young women, Dutch Surinamese Maya and Indian American Kyran, who break from societal and cultural norms and forge their own paths in New York City and Amsterdam.
In the series Maya moves to New York City to become an actress while Kyran moves to Amsterdam to immerse herself in the DJ world of the Netherlands.
The pilot was shot in both Holland and New York City and aims to emphasize cultural similarities and differences between the two paradigms Maya & Kyran come from, and ultimately show NYC and Amsterdam from an international perspective, inclusive of the many cultures that make both cities so vibrant.
