One Day at a Time is an American comedy web television series based on Norman Lear’s 1975–1984 sitcom of the same name. It was Lear’s company, Act III Productions, that approached Sony with the idea of reimagining the original series with a Latino family. It was developed by Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce, with Lear and his producing partner, Brent Miller as executive producers. The series features an ensemble cast starring Justina Machado, Todd Grinnell, Isabella Gomez, Marcel Ruiz, Stephen Tobolowsky, and Rita Moreno. The show revolves around a Cuban-American family living in Los Angeles, focusing on a single mom who is an Army veteran dealing with PTSD, her kids and her Cuban mother.
