The Paley Center for Media Selects An Evening with One Day at a Time on May 4
2017 PaleyLive LA Spring Season
The Paley Center For Media in Beverly Hills One Day at a Time Program will Feature a Special Screening of the Series, a Panel Conversation and Audience Q&A with the Cast and Creative Team as part of the PaleyLive LA Spring Season of events including the CW’s Riverdale (April 27th), Speechless (May 9th) and the Dirty Dancing Musical (May 18th).
Buy tickets and spend an evening with the cast and team behind the Netflix series ‘One Day at a Time’ a reboot of the original 70s series from the creative sitcom genius Norman Lear. This modern update keeps the basic story of a divorced woman juggling career, being catholic, an opinionated mother, kids and being a divorcee but with a modern twist. Added in the mix is the reality of dealing with the bureaucracy of service as a former soldier, immigration and sexual orientation
I am very excited to cover and attend the panel to learn why Mr. Lear decided to reboot the series on Netflix, hear about the casting of the series and the new spin with the hispanic family in the new gentrified Los Angeles. We can look forward to new stories with Season 2 on Netflix but before that happens leave a comment below of what I should ask the cast and production team.
Justina Machado, “Penelope”; Rita Moreno, “Lydia”; Isabella Gomez, “Elena”; Marcel Ruiz, “Alex”; Norman Lear, Executive Producer; Gloria Calderon Kellett, Showrunner & Executive Producer; Mike Royce, Showrunner & Executive Producer; and Brent Miller, Co-Executive Producer, are scheduled to participate, with additional panelists to be announced.
“Upon its premiere, One Day at A Time proved to be one of the smartest and freshest new shows to enter the television landscape,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “PaleyLive programs are praised for presenting the best of what television has to offer and this event is no exception. We’re so proud to add An Evening with One Day at a Time to the incredible lineup of shows featured at the Paley Center this spring.”
One Day at a Time, Netflix and Sony Pictures Television’s inspired update of the classic 70’s-era sitcom, has received well-deserved praise from audiences and critics alike. Featuring an incredible ensemble of actors and a brilliant creative team led by Executive Producer Norman Lear and Showrunners Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce, the series is at once timeless and decidedly of the moment. The series introduces the Alvarez family including single mom “Penelope” (Justina Machado), a nurse and Afghanistan veteran; daughter “Elena” (Isabella Gomez); son “Alex” (Marcel Ruiz); and Penelope’s mother “Lydia” (Rita Moreno), along with their building superintendent, “Schneider” (Todd Grinnell). Together they bring to life one of the most heartfelt and consistently funny series on television today.
