Stars share their favorite Latinx-themed TV shows and movies
Latinx-themed TV shows and movies are still not as prevalent in pop culture as they can and should be, but there are some great options out there that might not be on your radar yet.
Take Netflix's Gentefied, which is a first-generation story about a group of Mexican-American cousins chasing the American Dream. The dramedy resonates with many Latinx artists, but never seems to get the praise it deserves from general audiences and awards pundits.
"I really love what the folks at Gentefied are doing," says Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Melissa Fumero. "Season 1 was just so great, so beautiful, so spoke to the Latinx culture in Los Angeles. [It] felt really specific and genuine and I feel like not enough people are talking about it."
9-1-1 Lone Star's Gina Torres agrees, and "loves everything about this show!" Adds Clayton Cardenas (Mayans M.C.): "Being Mexican-American, those stories really ring true to me."
