Six Degrees is a drama series about six very different New Yorkers who go about their lives without realizing the impact they're having on one another. A mysterious web of coincidences gradually draws them closer and changes the course of their lives forever.
The series is based on possibilities that a greater force is at work guiding everyone together and connecting the lives of humans. The belief is that anyone on the planet can be connected to any other person through a chain of six people, which means that no one is a stranger... for long.
In the premiere episode, Laura, a grieving single mother, begins the chain. Next is Whitney, the self-made success story who thinks her boyfriend is cheating. Move on to Steven, the artist/photographer who believes he's lost his "eye." Follow with Damian, who can't escape his criminal brother's shadow, then on to Mae, the girl with a dangerous past that she's hiding from, and finally to Carlos, the good guy with a crush who doesn't know what he's in for.
This tale of intertwined destinies looks at how romance, success, peace or forgiveness might be right around the corner but can also be lost in an instant.
It's a story that emphaises how small the world really is and how someone just five people away might be shaping your future right now.
