It is through story that we understand ourselves and others.

The stories we tell have the power to bring us together

but also pull us apart.

Bridge Entertainment Labs (BEL) is dedicated to transforming the way Americans see and engage with each other across our divides. We are a resource to the entertainment industry designed to ignite compelling narratives that bridge political and social divides and generate new stories of “us” as Americans.

Together with industry executives, writers, producers, showrunners, filmmakers, social scientists, and bridging practitioners…

We’re flipping the script on how Americans understand and engage with each other across our divides.
