ABC Facebook Watch Show Heads to Broadcast

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

An ABC digital Facebook Watch show is heading to broadcast.

The original series called More in Common that launched in July and was produced by ABC Localish, the ABC Owned Stations Digital First Brand, has racked up over 10 million views online.

On November 3, a complication video will air on eight local ABC stations and the Live Well Network.


ABC’s Michael Koenigs, the host and executive producer of the series, and his team traveled across America over the past four months in search of stories.

“In what seems like divisive times, we’ve found in making ‘More in Common’ that people gravitate toward stories that celebrate what unites us,” said Koenigs. “We’re excited to bring these compelling stories to a new TV audience and to grow a more accepting and engaged community.”
