It’s like Girls Trip’s less raunchy kid sister who went to NYU and made some white friends.
Latina legend Carmen Sandiego is the most competent, confident person on the show, unapologetic in her femme-ness. A feminist Latina Robin Hood!
Plus: Lauren Morelli and Ellen page are teaming up for a reboot of a beloved LGBTQ mini-series; a trailer for Pimp; Sense8 news; The Bold Type’s second season is getting gayer; and Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone, and Olivia Colman are making a movie about a historical lesbian love triangle.
Also: a 9 to 5 reboot with Lily and Jane and Dolly? Paramount puts a pin in Heathers, Evan Rachel Wood’s new queer movie trailer is here, Vulture wonders about the bisexual boom on TV, and more!
Gina Rodriguez is a certified action star!
