Get excited. Tonight is the premiere of ABC’s new multi-camera sit-com, Cristela. It’s a family comedy following in the footsteps of The Cosby Show and Roseanne. It’s a hilarious and fresh look at the life of a working class, multigenerational family working toward the New American Dream.
The show picks up when Cristela – in her sixth year of law school – is finally on the brink of landing her first big (unpaid) internship at a prestigious law firm. The only problem is that her pursuit of success is more ambitious than her traditional Mexican-American family thinks is appropriate. As star Cristela Alonzo puts it, “It’s a throwback to the old sit-coms I grew up with, Roseanne, a little bit of George Lopez.”
Check out the video below for a deeper dive in to the making of Cristela, and watch the series premiere of Cristela tonight, October 10th at 8:30|7:30c on ABC!
