On the Block premiered on March 16, a month after the debut of another Netflix coming-of-cage comedy series, Everything Sucks! The pickup for On the Block comes a week after Netflix opted not to renew Everything Sucks! for a second season.
Co-created and executive produced by Iungerich, Eddie Gonzalez & Jeremy Haft, On My Block has garnered largely positive reviews. It is a coming-of-age comedy about four bright and street-savvy friends navigating their way through the triumph, pain and the newness of high school in LA’s South Central neighborhood.
The series stars Diego Tinoco, Sierra Capri, Jason Genao, Brett Gray, Jessica Marie Garcia and Ronnie Hawk.
