Mo is created and executive produced by Amer and Ramy creator and star Ramy Youssef. Amer plays Mo on Ramy, which was renewed for a third season on Hulu in 2020.

Mo is a semi-autobiographical series inspired by Amer's life as a Palestinian refugee growing up in Houston. Amer plays Mo Najjar, a man who's learning to adapt to his new world as he embarks on the path to U.S. citizenship.

"[Mo's] trying to reconcile his two cultures and three languages, all while navigating the complicated and seemingly never-ending immigration process. He loves his family and tries to provide for them -- even if they don't like how he does it," an official synopsis reads.

Teresa Ruiz, Omar Elba, Farah Bsieso and Tobe Nwigwe also star.

Mo will consist of eight 30-minute episodes and premieres Aug. 24 on Netflix.
