Gina Rodriguez Is Producing ‘Diary Of A Female President,’ A TV Show That Will Show Us A Cuban-American Girl As President And It’s Everything We Need RN
Continuing her quest for world domination, Latina actress and activist Gina Rodriguez will be producing a Disney+ original series called “Diary of a Female President”. According to the official synopsis, the series will follow “a Cuban-American 12-year-old girl as she navigates the ups and downs of middle school and her journey to becoming the future president of the United States”.
This is only one of the many projects that Rodriguez is producing under her I Can and I Will production banner.
Rodriguez has been busy of late, producing a slew of projects, including the Netflix original movie “Someone Great”, the Netflix animated series “Carmen San Diego”, 24 episodes of “Jane the Virgin”, and the recently-announced “Jane” spin-off called “Jane the Novela”. According to their website, I Can and I Will productions goal is to “create art that tells stories from the unheard and unseen” in order to “increases empathy and understanding for all communities”.
To make this news even more exciting, “Diary of a Female President” is the brain-child of Cuban-American “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” writer Ilana Peña. Peña will be billed as the series creator and is also set to serve as writer.
The fact that there will be a children series with Latinas in front of and behind the camera can’t be overstated.
Ever the activist, Rodriguez has made it her mission to tell a diverse spectrum of stories with her newfound success, and much of her work is focused on making sure Latinos are adequately represented on screen. Rodriguez has said before that “[being] an advocate is important for [her]” because it gives her the chance to” create more opportunities” for the Latinx community.
We, for one, know that the idea of a Latina as Commander-In-Chief isn’t such a far-fetched idea. Here’s to hoping that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will consent to guest-starring on the new show!
