XQ Super School Live

Done+Dusted partnered with XQ Institute and the Entertainment Industry Foundation to produce this one hour telecast that brought together the biggest names in entertainment, sports, and journalism to raise awareness of the challenges facing America’s schools. 

Inspirational segments, comedy sketches, frank discussions, and musical performances inspired viewers to reflect on the past, reckon with the present, and reconsider the future of American secondary education. The cast included Bill Hader, who opened the special, and Tom Hanks and Viola Davis, who gave the final commencement address. In between, the star-studded slate included Chance the Rapper, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Kelly Clarkson, Justin Timberlake, and many more.
