This study analyzes the 2017 television series remake, One Day at a Time, and aims to uncover how gender, race, and family dynamics are portrayed within the series. Character portrayals are reflections of the current climate in the United States related to how society views particular groups of people. I conducted a content analysis of the three main themes mentioned above; gender, race, and family dynamics. Findings suggest the depictions of gender, race, and family dynamics work to emphasize a more accepting and diverse climate in the United States. Specifically, this show highlights the relationships formed in Latinx communities and cultural support of multiple identities. I conclude this study by offering suggestions to future research on both television communities and Latinx communities that could potentially expand on the findings of this study.
