This powerful cast of characters each plays a significant role that is approachable to the everyday decisions and choices we all encounter. How do we tell someone we love them without fear of rejection? How do we address generational wounds? How do we talk about mental health struggles? How do we face ourselves when the walls come tumbling down?
We are invested in the future of these characters. Mercy finally starts to unravel the mystery of her own life. Cameron shows how powerful love can really be when you refuse to let go. Brenden bears his soul to the most unlikely of people. Gia starts to believe in herself and let someone in. Amani tries to find redemption for herself and her family. In this respect each role plays out a piece of all us. We all just want answers, love, acceptance, trust, redemption and forgiveness.
Anyone who has ever fought the battle in their own minds will appreciate it played out in the powerful and creative way of “Algorithm Decode.” A miniseries that opens up a discussion we shouldn’t be afraid to have. We should no longer feel the silent struggle in our own minds.
“Algorithm Decode” gives an authentic and unique take on this topic from writers Asheesh Williams and Terrell Lamont. It is masterfully directed by the writing duo. Let each episode take you into unlocking the codes behind the algorithms nasty secrets and lies. Will our characters figure out their own path? Can they face what each has done? Will they survive the truth?
“Algorithm Decode” will leave audiences asking questions about their own personal experiences. It will force you to take a look into your own hidden meanings. You will find yourself wondering until the very end who is the villain and who is the savior. Maybe we are all just a little bit of both.
