Reboots, One Day at a Time & Rita Moreno
Play • 36 min

What's with reboots & refashioning movies and TV series of the 70s, 80s & 90s? Will audiences expect reboots to surpass the originals?

One Day at a Time ran for 204 episodes through the late 70s and early 80s. Producer Norman Lear used the novelty of a working single mother of 2 teen to address coming-of-age social topics. Netflix & Lear have "refashioned" the premise with modern twists.

Leading this new One Day at a Time series is 86 year old Rita Moreno, an award-winning American treasure and our most prominent Latina actress.
