One Day at a Time is an American comedy web television series based on Norman Lear’s 1975–1984 sitcom of the same name. It was Lear’s company, Act III Productions, that approached Sony with the idea of reimagining the original series with a Latino family. It was developed by Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce, with Lear and his producing partner, Brent Miller as executive producers. The series features an ensemble cast starring Justina Machado, Todd Grinnell, Isabella Gomez, Marcel Ruiz, Stephen Tobolowsky, and Rita Moreno. The show revolves around a Cuban-American family living in Los Angeles, focusing on a single mom who is an Army veteran dealing with PTSD, her kids and her Cuban mother. The re-imagination of the original CBS sitcom tackles important issues like mental illness, immigration, sexism, homophobia, and racism that face Latinos living in the United States.
The show depicts the everyday life of a Cuban-American family with each character finding their own journey. Following the story of Penelope Alvarez (Justina Machado) a United States Army Nurse Corps veteran, facing her return to civilian life with a lot of unresolved issues from her time in the Army. She works as a nurse in the office of Dr. Leslie Berkowitz (Stephen Tobolowsky). After her husband’s alcoholism due to post-traumatic stress disorder from his time in the Army made it, in Penelope’s words, ‘unsafe to be in the house’, she separates from Victor (James Martínez), taking the children with her. With the help of her Mother, Lydia (Rita Moreno), a refugee who left Cuba as a teen following Fidel Castro’s rise to power, she is raising her two children: Elena (Isabella Gómez) and Alex (Marcel Ruiz). Apart from planning her daughter’s quinceañera, Penelope starts dating and finds a love interest. Elena, resistant to have a quinces, starts dating a teenager from her class; to later realize that she is a lesbian. After struggling in ways to tell her family about her sexuality she finds the right time to come out. Alex starts working in a school project about Cuba with the help of Schneider (Todd Grinnell) and Lydia. Lydia talks about leaving Cuba escaping from Castro’s dictatorship and how she fell in love with her late husband Berto (Tony Plana).
Each episode of the series focuses on important issues that face the Hispanic community and families in general.
