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 two episodes. The first episode highlights Shanghai, China, and San Francisco, California, while the second episode focuses on St. Louis, Missouri, and Nanjing, China. 

Watch now on the USA TODAY channel on The Roku Channel, Amazon News, Samsung TV Plus and most major streaming platforms.
