About the Project

Sister Cities is a documentary series developed for Chinese and American television audiences that affirms the commonalities of the human experience even in countries 6,000 miles apart.

Premised on the pairing of Sister Cities, a long-running international program of people-to-people exchange, this series explores the rich histories, cultural perspectives, and colorful characters of each city that make their respective residents proud. 

The series features three episodes. The first episode highlights Shanghai, China, and San Francisco, California, the second episode focuses on Nanjing, China, and St. Louis, Missouri, and the third showcase Xishuangbanna, China and Austin, Texas,
