The still-untitled show centers around an 18-year-old girl who is “destined for greatness,” Deadline reports.

Gomez’s executive producing partner, Aaron Kaplan, was inspired to create the series after hearing a speech given by LA high school student Ana Cobarrubias about her aspirations, the stereotypes her generation faces, and her life growing up in East LA. He was so impressed, in fact, that he’s called on Cobarrubias to be a consultant on the show.

Deadline has a video of her speech, which is definitely worth your time. She’s not only super driven and accomplished, but funny as hell.

The show is still looking for a writer, so hey. Here’s hoping that’s a path for other young Latinos destined for greatness to make that greatness a reality.
