Diane Guerrero is returning to TV and my have the tables turned.
Let’s forget jailbird Maritza Ramos on Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black” for a second. (Just for a second, I said, don’t freak out).
Guerrero, as reported by Deadline, will now portray a “successful corporate attorney who starts taking pro bono cases for undocumented immigrants after her past as the child of deported parents is revealed by a family emergency.”
Get it girl!

The New Jersey-based actress of Colombian descent, who’s also known for her role as Lina on “Jane the Virgin,” has teamed up with “Jane the Virgin’s” producers Jennie Synder Urman, Paul Sciarrota and Ben Silverman to bring her deep-felt, personal story to the small screen.
The upcoming project is titled “In the Country We Love,” after Guerrero’s published memoir.
If you’ve been living under a rock, the book tells the story of a 14-year-old Guerrero whose parents were deported to Colombia.
