The Trailer For Netflix's ‘One Day At A Time’ Reboot Is Finally Here

A Latino family. Rita Moreno. What more could you ask for?

It’s been nearly a year since Netflix ordered a 13-episode straight-to-series for the Latino family reboot of “One Day At A Time.” The wait is almost over.

The streaming company gave fans a first look at the series, set to premiere Jan. 6, in a 2-minute trailer released Wednesday. The remake of Norman Lear’s 1970s sitcom stars Rita Moreno, Justina Machado and was written by Gloria Calderon Kellett, who's written and produced for "How I Met Your Mother," "iZombie," and "Devious Maids." 

Much like the original, the 2017 version will center on a single mother’s struggles (Machado) to raise her children with the help of her mother (Moreno). But in this case, the family is Cuban-American and Machado’s character is a former military mom raising a daughter and a son. 

Moreno briefly described the series during an interview with The Huffington Post in July.

“It’s a very authentically Latino-oriented show,” she told HuffPost. “Hilarious, but every episode deals with an issue relating to the world-at-large.”
