One Day At A Time, the 1970’s CBS sitcom, got a Netflix revamp with a twist.
Whereas the original version was about a divorced mother and her two daughters starting fresh in Indianapolis, the revamp will follow suit, but instead focus on a Cuban-American family starting fresh in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.
The show’s old-new theme song, expertly performed and produced by none other than Gloria and Emilio Estefan, respectively, perfectly reflects its new angle. With a Latin sound, the intro features old family photos and SO many on point references to Cuban culture that even if you’re not from the island, you’ll still feel proud AF to be Latino.
See it below. You’ll be craving a cortadito shortly after. Sorry not sorry.
Aaaaand here’s the OG, for reference.
Those bell bottoms, though.
The new version will star Rita Moreno as the matriarch, Justina Machado as her daughter Penelope, and Isabella Gomez as her granddaughter, Elena. Vulture describes it as feeling “like comfort food,” and “close to a perfect example of old-school, all-things-to-all-people broadcasting: smart but not hifalutin, blunt but not crass, politically and culturally aware (often self-aware) but never academic or theoretical, and proudly old-fashioned in its methods.” We can’t wait.
It premieres January 6.
