ANACOSTIA the series follows the lives of four friends as they navigate through Love, Deceit, Betrayal, Sex and Death with a season finally that will leave your mouths open. This 13 episode series will be filmed on location in several areas including Washington DC, Landover Maryland, Baltimore Maryland, Virginia and New York City. Born in DC General Hospital and raised on Chicago Street in southeast, Anderson moved to Montgomery County suburbs during his last year at Douglass Junior High in DC. Yet, he never forgot his hometown. Despite the tragedy he endured—“Out of twenty young males I grew up with, only two are living”—Anderson still believes Anacostia reared him to be a survivor. He named his production company, Southeast Boy Productions, as homage. "The show is escapism," Anderson says. “It shows Anacostia in a completely different way that I don’t think people get a chance to see. People usually see 'local teen gets shot', but, they don’t see everyday that there are people out there working, striving and have great lives."
