All Sons & Daughters
The first episode of “All Sons & Daughters,” the new serialized drama about a family of three women struggling to survive in the post-apocalyptic world of Los Angeles following a nuclear attack, premiered Monday night on ABC. In the premiere episode titled “Origin,” we learn how the sisters came together.
Leslie Anne Jordan plays Sarah, a former Marine whose husband died in combat while she was pregnant. She and her daughter, Tessa, are living in a trailer park off the grid. When a stranger named David Alan Leonard approaches her asking for shelter, he offers to help Sarah find work and a place to live. He takes her to his apartment where she meets his wife, Jennifer, played by actress/writer/director Leslie Anne Jordan.
After getting to know each other, Sarah convinces David to let her move into his house. Soon, Sarah begins working for him at his car repair shop, and soon enough, the couple starts dating. But David isn’t ready to commit to marriage just yet.
In the second episode titled “All Sons & Daughers,” it’s revealed why David didn’t want to marry Sarah. In fact, he had been married once before, and lost everything because of his ex-wife. This experience taught him that he doesn’t want to repeat history.
As the season progresses, the sisters begin to bond over their shared experiences and struggles. They’re forced to confront some difficult truths about themselves and their relationships.
“I think I’m gonna cry,” Jordan told ET Canada during the show’s panel discussion at the ATX Television Festival in June 2018. “Because I’ve never cried on camera in my life.”
Jordan added, “This is the most personal thing I’ve ever done. And I feel like I’m doing something very important. Because there are people out there who are suffering and they don’t have anyone to talk to.

In the early 2000s, folk music was dominated by rock bands like Coldplay, Radiohead, U2, and the Beatles. But over the next decade, the genre saw a resurgence thanks to acts like Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers, whose rootsy sound helped usher in a new generation of fans. In 2016, Americana became a bona fide movement, with acts like Sam Smith, Hozier, and Jason Isbell leading the charge. Today, there’s no shortage of artists making waves in the genre—and we’ve rounded up 10 of our favorites here.
