Cristela, ABC‘s semi-autobiographical multi-camera comedy co-created by and starring rising stand-up comedian Cristela Alonzo, has locked in its main cast. Terri Hoyos, Roxana Ortega, Carlos Ponce and Andrew Leeds (NCIS: LA) have been cast as regulars and newcomer Sarah Halford as recurring in the “proof of concept”/presentation, from 20th TV and 21 Laps/Adelstein. The show, co-written by Alonzo and Kevin Hench, tells the story of Cristela (Alonzo), an American Latina straddling two cultures while not fully belonging to either.
