Netflix released the first trailer for its reboot of Norman Lear’s classic sitcom “One Day at a Time” on Wednesday, giving a first look at the series and its a Cuban-American family.
The series stars “Six Feet Under’s” Justina Machado as a recently separated, former military mom navigating a new single life while raising her radical teenaged daughter and socially adept tween son. She’s “helped” by her old-school Cuban-born mom, played by Rita Moreno, and her building manager-turned-invaluable confidante.
Stephen Tobolowsky, Todd Grinnell, Isabella Gomez and Marcel Ruiz also star in the series, which will debut on Netflix on Jan. 6.
“How I Met Your Mother” producer Gloria Calderón Kellett and “Men of a Certain Age” co-creator Mike Royce executive-produce and are co-showrunners alongside executive producer Norman Lear. The 13-episode first season is produced by Act III Productions, Inc., Snowpants Productions and Small Fish Studios in association with Sony Pictures Television.
The original sitcom ran for nine seasons on CBS between 1975 and 1984. Bonnie Franklin starred as a divorced mother raising her two daughters, played by Mackenzie Phillips and Valerie Bertinelli. It joins Jeff Franklin’s “Full House” in becoming the latest classic sitcom to get a reboot from Netflix.
