Legend Rita Moreno stars alongside Justina Machado
Here’s your exclusive first look at the family at the center of Netflix’s reimagining of Norman Lear’s classic comedy One Day at a Time.
Kicking off with 13 episodes, the series is a reboot of the TV legend’s hit sitcom, which ran from 1975 to 1984 on CBS and starred Bonnie Franklin, Mackenzie Phillips, and Valerie Bertinelli. Executive-produced by Lear, Everybody Loves Raymond‘s Mike Royce, and How I Met Your Mother‘s Gloria Calderon Kellett (pictured above), this new series follows three generations of a Cuban-American family “navigating the ups and downs of life,” Netflix said.
Justina Machado stars as Penelope, a military veteran and newly single mother who turns to her “old school” mother Lydia (Rita Moreno) for help with raising her two millennial children, “radical” teenager Elena (Isabella Gomez) and “socially adept” tween Alex (Marcel Ruiz). Penelope will also receive help from her building manager Schneider (Todd Grinnell).
Check out the touching images below for a glimpse at what this family looks like through good times and bad.
One Day at a Time debuts Jan. 6 on Netflix.
