Mandy Patinkin is set to narrate “Indivisible: Healing Hate,” is a six-part documentary series for Paramount Plus that focuses on the rise of far-right extremism and how it drove the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Bruce directed the docuseries, while Murphy is the writer. According to the series’ logline, “‘Indivisible: Healing Hate’ answers important questions including: In a nation founded on the tenets of liberty and equality, how could such a violent and destructive event have occurred? What exactly is far right extremism? Where does it come from and how did it become so dangerous a platform? How is extremism distorted and politicized by media narratives to divide us as a people? And how can we learn from the past and take appropriate steps to heal the differences and prevent violent confrontations like this in the future?”
