An Evening with One Day at a Time
7:00 PM PT
One Day at a Time, Netflix and Sony Pictures Television’s inspired update of the classic '70s-era sitcom, has won well-deserved praise from audiences and critics alike. Featuring a dazzling ensemble of actors and a brilliant creative team led by executive producer Norman Lear and showrunners Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce, the series is at once timeless and decidedly of the moment. One Day at a Tim introduces us to the Alvarez family, including single mom “Penelope” (Justina Machado), a nurse and Afghanistan veteran; daughter “Elena” (Isabella Gomez); son “Alex” (Marcel Ruiz); and Penelope's mother “Lydia” (played deliciously by Rita Moreno), along with their building superintendent, “Schneider” (Todd Grinnell). Together they bring to life one of the most heartfelt and consistently funny series on television today. Variety called it “spectacular” and noted “it feeds off of that feverish electricity of awkwardness, to do what television does best—bring people together, unwilling but starry-eyed, into a single shared moment.” The Paley Center proudly welcomes the cast and creative team for this special screening and conversation.
