Here’s a sentence you probably weren’t expecting to read today: Meet the new Bonnie Franklin!
Netflix’s Latino reboot of the classic sitcom One Day at a Time has tapped Justina Machado (ER, Private Practice) to star as single-mom Penelope, a 2016 version of Franklin’s character from the original series, our sister site Deadline reports.
Penelope is described as a “recently separated former military mom” who is struggling to raise her outspoken daughter and “socially adept” son while also running a doctor’s office. Penelope gets some “help” from her Cuban-born mother (Jane the Virgin‘s Rita Moreno) and her very friendly building manager, Schneider.
