About the show
Momo's AmeriKa is about Momo, an Egyptian immigrant who's been living in Orange County California, since he moved to America ten years ago. While some immigrants quickly assimilate and blend in, others create their own little home away from home.
Momo belongs to the latter kind, as he started his own little Arabia within the OC. His immediate family of four and his adopted family of goofy friends are searching for their version of the elusive "American Dream." Inevitably, they find themselves in all kinds of hilarious situations and wild adventures. What saves them is their big hearts and loyalty to each other in this unlikely friendship in a foreign country that became their new home.
