Master of none
Master of None series is loosely based on the life of the creator and lead actor of series Aziz Ansari. It’s a comedy-drama most millennials will relate to.

The Cast being mostly Hispanic and Black young actors deliver a very promising performance. With abrupt twists and turns On My Block is never boring and will offer its audience occasional emotional whiplash.
One Day at a Time

Justina Machado playing the role of a single mother and a military veteran suffering from PTSD along with her two teenage kids is a hanger-on, but Rita Moreno playing the role of Abuelita is the undoubted star of the show.
