Koenigs and his team travel across the United States to find unlikely friendships in unlikely places.
“These friendships are authentic, we aren’t forcing people together,” he told Bold TV hosts, Carrie Sheffield and John Haltiwanger.
Koenigs said his most significant story to date is when a former member of the KKK and a Syrian Muslim refugee formed a special bond after meeting face-to-face in rural Georgia.
The show brings to light the disconnect that is created by conversations and debates held through social media and the internet.
“Most people think you can’t change, but in fact when you’re exposed to someone from the other side, it’s hard not to get pulled to the middle,” Koenigs said. “It’s hard not to be friends with somebody when they’re treating you nicely.”
So, what is next for “More In Common”? Koenigs plans to take the show international, and seek unlikely friendships between Americans and citizens of other countries because, as he told Bold TV: “We are not that different from people living in other countries.”
