13 Aug Isabel and Her Purple Marker
This coming of age original series is about a young girl who uses her purple marker to understand her reality. If “Moonlight” was about a trigueña Latina girl living in Miami’s Hialeah and who loves to draw to communicate, it would be “Isabel and Her Purple Marker.”
Format: Five minute episodes. Six episodes per season. Three seasons complete.

Isabel Oscar Martinez is quiet, observant, and poor. She’s growing up in government housing in Hialeah, Florida. A place where the heat doesn’t just make you sweat, it sets fire to your dreams till they turn to ash. It’s a place where Isabel’s mother, Veronica, does whatever it takes to survive and protect her children; and her brother only thinks of the quickest way to get money so his family can live like the Joneses.
