Written by Susan Winter; Co-created by Susan Winter and David Skinner


A one-hour, cable dramedy about a Sanctuary City struggling to survive with humor and hope. Driven by her 60’s past, a fierce, passionate beekeeper and alternative healer risks everything running her illegal safe house for young, undocumented, border crossers. From Santa Fe to the Navajo Canyon lands, Mel and her melting pot community navigate the uncertainty of new, federal policies, where the Old Wild West meets the New Age, and where Nature is majestic and in environmental crisis.


Writer/filmmaker, Susan Winter received critical acclaim for her award winning, independent feature, POUSSE CAFÉ. The American Indian and immigrant-rich back-drop of Santa Fe inspired Susan Winter and David Skinner’s story of “The Hive.”
