Liza Asner, the daughter of the late actor Edward Asner, came to manage her father's career, office and schedule in the last decade of his life and up to his passing in August 2021. During this time, she spread her wings as a theater producer, writer, and eventually filmmaker.

Liza produced the successful theater run of a political comedy entitled "God Help Us" which starred her famous father as The Almighty. The show had just hit its stride and was booking shows all over the country when the Covid19 pandemic began and shut down the tour.

Frustrated with the quarantine, she began to focus on what she could do with the downtime. Inspired by the success and theme of the play, she began working on a documentary that would examine the causes and possible solutions of political polarization in the United States.

Eventually interviewing nearly a dozen well known political figures, educators, scholars, community leaders and activists from both conservative and liberal sides of the aisle, the end result is "It Isn't JUST Politics" which is a bipartisan discussion of how we got here and what we can do to solve the great divide between Americans.
