About The Project

Broken System is a dramedy about a young girl who was raised in foster care. A system designed to protect her from unfit parents however it packs on more trauma that she must heal from. It takes you on a journey of self-discovery through pain, purpose, and passion. After intensive trauma therapy, she realizes that she needs to work harder on herself in order to make a greater impact on the world. Will she be up for the task or will her inner demons get the best of her? Can we count on her to get it together so that she can fix this broken system?

Themes

Abuse, abandonment, mental illness, neglect and drug addiction are incredibly complex and no laughing matter. However, Broken System explores just how complicated these issue are within our even more complicated foster care system.

Statement.

Tameka Anderson was born in the late 70’s during the War on Drugs era. She was a direct product of the crack epidemic in the black community and immediately placed in foster care where she spent her entire childhood. Life imitates art

because she was driven to make an impact in the very system that caused her the most heartache and pain. She became a court-appointed special advocate (CASA) for youth in foster care then later became a specialty foster parent and ultimately
serving as an affiliate Board member on the Dept. of Children and Family Services Task Force team.

Having experience on all sides of the system, she began to recognize just how broken it was and wanted to use her influence to make a difference.

Frustrated by the massive complexities in the foster care system, Broken System was born.
