America Ferrera Co-Executive Produced a New Web Series With An All-Latino Cast, and It Looks Awesome

No cartels. No guns. No drugs. That's what is promised in a new web series co-executive produced by America Ferrera, GENTE-FIED. And what a refreshing thing that is to hear. How many times have I lamented the overwhelming number of Latino stereotypes Hollywood has profited from in their most beloved drug war movies alone? A lot. And it continues.

Which makes GENTE-FIED that much more intriguing. The 7-episode series, which has no release date just yet, follows a relatively unknown all-Latino cast of characters as they deal with gentrification in their predominantly Mexican working-class Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights. Ferrera also appears throughout the show, which will help fill a void of narratives that highlight the lives of minority characters who vary in personality, motivation, gender, sexual orientation, and age.

I am really looking forward to this. Watch the trailer:
