Pop Culture Fix: Stephanie Beatriz Shines, Syd and Elena Smooch in the New “One Day at a Time” Trailer

After a holiday slumber, Hollywood is back in action and there’s plenty of queer proof in this week’s Pop Culture Fix

+ Here’s the all-new One Day at a Time trailer starring Stephanie Beatriz and Melissa Fumero and also Elena and Syd kissing!

+ Maybe I knew but I don’t think I knew that Sarah Paulson is playing Nurse Ratched in Ryan Murphy’s Netlix One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest adaptation, succinctly titled Ratched. Anyway, I know now because this week news broke that New York gubernatorial candidate and foremother of legalized weed in the Empire State, Cynthia Nixon, has also joined the cast. Sarah’s playing a younger version of Nurse Ratched, so I guess we get to see her become… a psychopath? So far, it’s got a two-season eighteeen-episode order. (I learned that the Beaver is the state animal of New York when I was researching this series, just so you know.)

+ Please enjoy the Grace and Frankie season five trailer and guess what else? Netflix has already given it a season six!

+ Jane the Virgin’s final (😭) season kicks off on March 27. (Also, I am so excited for Gina Rodriguez’s Carmen Sandiego I can hardly stand it.)

+ Shane McCutcheon is coming to grown-ish.

+ Breeda Wool, who you know as Faith from unREAL and also as Jen Richards’ doppelganger, is joining G.L.O.W. for season three and I will bet you ten American dollars that she’s playing gay again.

+ Pose‘s Hailie Sahar is coming to Good Trouble.

+ Michelle Yeoh’s Star Trek spin-off is real!

+ Women characters outnumber male leads more than two to one in U.S. TV dramas?!?!?!

Angela Robinson is putting down roots at Paramount. (I wish those roots included a D.E.B.S. TV show.)

+ Would you like a trailer for Tessa Thompson’s Little Woods? She shannot be confined by genre, y’all. Shannot!

+ Supergirl will meet Nia’s family when the show returns next week, and also Alex will somehow be looking gayer and gayer.

+ Amandla Stenberg is one of Essence‘s Black Women in Hollywood honorees this year.

+ And finally: Oscars problem solved.

      • Ahh that would have been amazing to see! I’m sorry it got cancelled.

        The show is so sweet and I think the writing is amazing — whoever is writing the jokes is *hilarious*, and of course the cast delivers every line with perfection. The line from the trailer, “My other (w)hole” y mamá just shutting that down, hah!

  1. “Moennig’s character is an openly lesbian CalU teacher for a gender studies class”
    Can you imagine how many toaster ovens this professor has?

  2. I’ve been wondering what I should do for my birthday this weekend. I think I’ll stay in and watch TV!
