Another TV series for Disney+.

Quote:
So [Gina] Rodriguez is concentrating on using her platform to create change. Her production company just sold a series to Disney’s new streaming service about a Latina girl who will grow up to be President. After all, it’s children, she argues, who are most affected by the lack of diversity onscreen.

Recently, her I Can and I Will production company “just sold a dope show” called “Diary of a Female President” to Disney’s planned streaming service “It’s about a young Latina girl in middle school, and you flash-forward to the future and she’s the president of the United States,” she says.

Disney+, the forthcoming SVOD platform, is adding to its scripted offerings, handing out a 10-episode, straight-to-series order for half-hour comedy Diary of a Female President. Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez will executive produce. Told from the narration of her diary, the series follows a Cuban-American 12-year-old girl as she navigates the ups and downs of middle school and her journey to becoming the future president of the United States. Ilana Peña (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) created the original concept and will serve as writer and executive producer. Robin Shorr (The Carmichael Show) will serve as showrunner and exec produce alongside Rodriguez and her CBS TV Studios-based I Can and I Will banner topper Emily Gipson.

We at GWW have heard ‘Diary of a Female President,’ the upcoming 10-episode Disney+ series, will begin filming this June and wrap this September in Los Angeles, California. Additionally, while it was previously reported the show will star Gina Rodriguez (‘Jane the Virgin,’ ‘Carmen Sandiego’), we can reveal she will also be a director on the series. However, it is unknown how many episodes Rodriguez will direct. While there is no premiere date as of now, the show will most likely release in 2020. Disney+ will launch at the end of this year.

TBH since this seems geared to kids I doubt I’ll ever watch it but I’m so happy Selenis Leyva is getting more work post OINTB. Gloria was always a favorite of mine, and Leyva looks fantastic in the clips I’ve seen.

Yes, it feels very tragic. :( But hopefully Kamala Harris will be the first female president in 2024 after Biden decides not to run for re-election. Cheers to that.

Did anyone else watch Season 1? I'm a year and a half late, but I just finished it. It was SO GOOD.

It had some language in it - you could tell that it wasn't a "Disney" show due to that. But it was like some of the best Disney Channel shows, in that it dealt not only with the kids' issues but also of the adults. So I'd call it a family show, not even a kids' show.

I really loved all the characters in this. Elena is NOT a perfect protagonist, and she was refreshing because of it. Her friendships were believable. And her brother, Bobby, dealing with friendships was believable, and him dealing with his sexuality was something that I am glad is on Disney+. Gabi, the mom, and her friend/coworker Cami, and Gabi's coworker/boyfriend Sam were great as well, and I really felt for Gabi, and she learned how to move onto a new relationship, and Cami not telling her parents about her live-in girlfriend. And Sam is THE BEST. I can't wait for Season Two and I hope that Elena gets to share that beverage with Joey, and that Elena, Sasha, and Jessie remain friends, and that Bobby can maybe tell Liam how he feels, and Sam and Gabi can make their relationship last, and that Cami can tell her parents about her girlfriend. I am so invested. SUCH A GOOD SHOW!

I thought the show was excellent, too. Even though it's not technically a Disney show, it did feel like the kind of series that would have aired alongside "Lizzie McGuire", "Even Stevens" and "The Famous Jett Jackson" back in the day (albeit tackling a few themes that probably wouldn't have been allowed on children's television in the early 2000s). I liked that it was just about this girl facing her problems and wasn't too overly cliche. Her being the future president was a nice bookend, but the show was also smart to not have a bunch of wink-wink jokes to the camera about her later becoming Commander-in-Chief.

I'm looking forward to Season 2, whenever that ends up premiering.

Yes, I agree that it had it's "Lizzie"-like moments and themes for sure...besides some topics, the minor use of language (like "@$$") made it stand out from the other Disney-made shows.
