Going live January 6 on the streaming service, the comedy revolves around Cuban-American family led by a recently separated, military-veteran mom (Justina Machado) navigating a new single life while raising her radical teenage daughter (Isabella Gomez) and socially adept tween son (Marcel Ruiz). She gets “help” from her old-school Cuba-born mom (Rita Moreno) and a friends-without-benefits building manager Schneider (Todd Grinnell). Recurring players include Stephen Tobolowsky, Eric Nenninger, Fiona Gubelmann, Ariela Barer, Froy Gutierrez and Thomas Barbusca.
“Life can be tough,” the laugh-aided trailer reminds, but also sweet. And amazing. To quote an old song, it’s “the one you get, so go and have a ball.” The 13-episode first season of One Day at a Time is produced by Act III Productions, Snowpants Productions and Small Fish Studios in association with Sony Pictures Television. Lear, Mike Royce, Gloria Calderón Kellett and Michael Garcia are executive producers.
