Vida first look: Watch two sisters come home in new Starz series
There really is no place like home.
In the new teaser for Starz’s Vida, sisters Emma (Mishel Prada) and Lyn (Melissa Barrera) return home after a tragedy to find the more things change, the more they stay the same. Circumstances bring them together even if they’d rather be apart: “There is such a thing as too much family,” says Lyn.
Per Starz, “Vida is a half-hour drama series focusing on two Mexican-American sisters from the Eastside of Los Angeles who couldn’t be more different or distanced from each other.” But when the sisters are forced to return home, “they are confronted by the past and surprising truth about their mother’s identity.”
The series, from showrunner Tanya Saracho (How to Get Away With Murder, Looking, Girls), also stars Ser Anzoategui (East Los High, Shameless, The Fosters), Chelsea Rendon (The Fosters), Carlos Miranda (The Bling Ring, Dallas) and Maria Elena Laas (Vital Signs).
The recurring cast features Elena Campbell-Martínez (The Big Bang Theory, Jane the Virgin, Modern Family, The 15:17 to Paris), Ramses Jimenez (Fear the Walking Dead, Wisdom of the Crowd, Good Behavior), Luis Bordonada (Better Call Saul, The Bridge, Barracuda), Elizabeth De Razzo (The 33, Eastbound & Down, Idiotsitter), Renee Victor (Coco, Weeds, The Apostle), Adelina Anthony (Bruising for Besos, Gold Star), and Erika Soto.
Vida premieres May 6. Watch the teaser above.
