The Alvarez family is getting the aninmation treatment.
Yes, you heard that right. One Day At A Time – which will air it’s forced midseason finale tonight (they were forced to halt production due to the pandemic – will return later this spring for an animated special.
All series regulars will voice their own characters, with additional celebrity guest stars expected to be announced.
The animated special will center around the election, and Penelope’s conservative family visiting. It will feature the entire Alvarez family discussing strategies for how to survive …well, family.
“As we all know, it’s hard to keep One Day At a Time off the air. During this unprecedented time, we wanted to find a way to keep our family – on camera and behind the scenes – together and create more entertaining content for our fans who are self-distancing at home,” Gloria Calderon Kellet said. “This animated special gives us an exciting opportunity to imagine the Alvarez family in a colorful new way while continuing to tell important and relevant stories.”
I don’t know about you, but I’m really, really hyped for this, and for what it means for the content coming to us. Yes, some creativity will be needed, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get good content!
One Day At A Time airs Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30c on Pop TV.
