Eva Longoria and America Ferrera’s long-awaited TV returns have a date: Monday, Jan. 4.
In advance of the new year, the Peacock net will offer sneak peeks of the new comedies. Two episodes of Superstore will air on Monday, Nov. 30, at 10 following The Voice. A week later, Telenovela will follow The Voice in the same slot.
Telenovela stars Longoria as Ana Sofia, the star of a popular Spanish-language soap opera… who doesn’t speak any Spanish. Amaury Nolasco (Prison Break) plays the villain on the show-within-a-show; other cast members include Jencarlos Canela (Más Sabe el Diablo) as superstar heartthrob Xavier and Diana Maria Riva (The Bridge) as Ana Maria’s best friend Mia.
Superstore is set in a big-box store and centers on Ferrera’s Amy, a longtime employee who keeps the place running. Ben Feldman (A to Z) plays Jonah, a new hire described as a “naive dreamer.” The cast also includes Colton Dunn (Key and Peele), Nico Santos (Mulaney) and Lauren Ash (Super Fun Night) co-star.
