Nestled on the banks of the Delaware River, halfway between New York City and Philadelphia lies a vibrant river town that for decades has attracted eccentric artists, spiritual seekers and pioneering activists looking for a place to call home, all looking for New Hope.
Seasons of New Hope chronicles a diverse group of fictional characters against the very real backdrop of New Hope, Pennsylvania. This area of Bucks County has had a rich and consistent role as a haven for the LGBTQ community. Artists and musicians came to the picturesque river town in the 1940s because of its idyllic setting and close proximity to two major cities.
During the fifties the area saw a swell in creative activity, noting such famous residents as Oscar Hammerstein, Dorothy Parker, James Michener and Moss Hart. Since that time New Hope has thrived as a center for diversity and inclusiveness. This series focuses on the inner lives of the people who give the town its eternal soul and energy.
