Created and directed by the award-winning filmmakers Mark Benjamin and Marc Levin, Brick City is a five-part documentary series that fans out around the city of Newark, New Jersey to capture the daily drama of a community striving to become a better, safer, stronger place to live. Against great odds, Newark's citizens and its Mayor, Cory A. Booker, fight to raise the city out of nearly a half century of violence, poverty, and corruption. In the five one-hour episodes of Brick City, the lives of Mayor Booker, citizens on the front lines, and key figures re-making the city — from developers to gang members and youth mentors — intertwine in a portrait of a city at a critical moment in history.

If this doesn't win an Emmy next year, I'll eat my TV
This series is soooo good -- gripping, uplifting, raw, emotional. And the people profiled in the series are so inspiring, especially Jayda, Creep and Mayor Cory Booker. I watch them and I think, "I should do more to make a difference in my community." It makes me want to get involved. I would love to see more of these people, and hope they get everything they are working so hard for.

This series is as entertaining as it is informative. Nice to see a politician actually trying to make a difference... This is a story everyone should know and see. Finally, some true reality on tv. Very well made.
