‘One Day at a Time’ getting Netflix reboot
For the ‘80s Nation, it feels like every time our collective blood pressure falls within acceptable levels, the geniuses in Hollywood find a way to send us back to the hospital. But here’s a reboot idea that just might be the right spoonful of medicine: Netflix has announced a Latino family version of TV’s One Day at a Time.
Deadline.com reports that Rita Moreno (West Side Story) would star in a 13-episode season, which is based on the Norman Lear sitcom that ran from 1975 to 1984. That series starred Bonnie Franklin as a newly divorced mom trying to raise two daughters (Valerie Bertinelli, Mackenzie Phillips) with the help of a loopy building superintendent (Pat Harrington Jr., who passed away Jan. 6).
Deadline says the Netflix version will feature Moreno as a grandmother who helps her Cuban-American daughter raise a son and daughter. And yes, there will be a building super named Schneider.
No word yet on when production would start or the episodes will air.
