Netflix has slotted February 21 for the launch of Gentefied, its 10-episode Latinx dramedy from Marvin Lemus and Linda Yvette Chávez — the duo behind Gente-fied: The Digital Series, which premiered at Sundance 2017 — and Macro. The internet TV network also released the official trailer, which you can watch above.
Described as a badass Spanglish series about family, community, brown love and the displacement that disrupts it all, Gentefied follows three Mexican-American cousins and their struggle to chase the American Dream, even while that same dream threatens the things they hold most dear: their neighborhood, their immigrant grandfather and the family taco shop. Set in a rapidly changing Los Angeles, the series will navigate important themes such as identity, class and balancing insta-fame with translating memes for their parents. And it will settle once and for all how to pronounce Latinx, Netflix notes.
Joaquín Cosío, Karrie Martin, JJ Soria and Carlos Santos star. Executive Producer America Ferrera and Wilmer Valderrama are confirmed to guest star. Ferrera directed two episodes along with co-creator Lemus, Marta Cunningham, Aurora Guerrero and Andrew Ahn.
Gentefied is a Netflix production. Monica Macer serves as showrunner and executive producer. Charles D. King and Kim Roth of MACRO produce along with Ferrera of Take Fountain, Teri Weinberg of Yellow Brick Road and Aaliyah Williams.
