Are you ready for a Cuban-American “One Day at a Time” with Rita Moreno?

Norman Lear is bringing back one of his ground breaking TV shows and putting a Latin spin on it. One Day at a Time may seem rather trite now, but back in the late 70s it’s overt feminism was a new concept to TV. The show featured a recently divorced mother who negotiated her new partner-less life while trying to raise her two daughters.

Netflix has picked up the reboot for a 13 episode order. Rita Moreno will play a new character, the grandmother. “I want her to have a mother so there are three generations of Latino women,” he explained. With Rita he is off to a good start, it will be good to see her on our screens again.
