America Ferrara’s new bilingual comedy series “Gentefied” dropped its first trailer this morning and it’s so genuinely funny and sweet and cute; I just couldn’t wait another second to tell you about it!
The new Netflix show, produced by Ferrera and adapted from a 2017 Sundance hit of the same name, centers around an immigrant family trying to save their family’s taco shop in Los Angeles’ famously gentrified Boyle Heights. It’s also got a woman of color showrunner, Monica Macer, who told The Hollywood Reporter back in April that she saw a lot of her own coming-of-age in the series, “Being the daughter of an immigrant myself, I’m so proud to run a uniquely first-gen series that chronicles the trials and triumphs of the Morales family as they adapt, resist and lean into the changing landscape of L.A.”
This trailer already combines my absolute things: Latinx families that love each other, drool-worthy close ups of food, and brown girls making out. What more could you ask for?
Gentefied premieres February 21st on Netflix.
