NALIP's Lifetime Achievement awardee, Ivonne Coll is set to appear on the Netflix reboot, “One Day at a Time.” “One Day at a Time” is a refreshingly, modern take on a Cuban-American family.The show consists of an all-Latino cast and both showrunners Gloria Calderón-Kellett and Mike Royce ensure that the on-screen family will stay true to its origin. Justina Machado, actress and long-time friend of Ivonne Coll, is a regular on the show. It’ll be a treat to see these two talented individuals collaborate once again.
According to Variety, “She will play Esme, the new love interest for Dr. Berkowitz (Stephen Tobolowsky) — Lydia (Rita Moreno) experiences unfamiliar feelings of jealousy when she discovers that Dr. Berkowitz has taken another beautiful Latina, Esme, on a date. Esme makes it clear she is no pushover when Lydia confronts her about the relationship. The role reunites her with “One Day” star Rita Moreno, who played the “Glam-ma” on the CW’s “Jane.”
