Season 5 trailer (launches January 16th)

Episode description

Hello. I’m Jakob Lewis and Neighbors….is back. January 16th.

I’m on a quest to make sense of the human experience through the lives of my neighbors. There’s something magical about getting an intimate pass into someone’s world and hearing about the moments that transformed them.

*In season 5 I go deeper into their stories than I ever have before. Stories of getting shot, getting kicked out of the house, finding a lost brother, donating a kidney, starting a rock band, forgiving your daughter’s murderer. *
