Synopsis: 
It's 2003 and Lucia Torres, 13 yrs, only wants one thing in her life, to be the best actress of her generation. But thanks to her over bearing Latin American family, Lucia's troubled choices lead to embarrassing moments that only get magnified by her dramatic sense of humour. Growing up Latina is not as easy as it may seem. With a loud matriarch house hold, family constantly pouring in from all walks of the earth, older siblings setting unreachable standards, younger siblings with attitude and Abuelos who like to chime when ever they feel like it, Lucia's life is as chaotic as you can imagine. Oh, and let's not even mention the puberty... The tone and general feel of this show will be similar to "That's So Raven" and "Lizzie McGuire."

60s - 70s
Character 1 Description: 
Abuela is Marina's mother. Her name is actually Ana, but we will just refer to her as Abuela. She is a stern but lovable grandmother whose thoughts are typically "Are you hungry? Do you want some food? I made some Sancoho. Are you feeling sick? Vaporub!" You'll never see her without her lipstick and she always has something to complain about. You can bet your pretty penny that Marina takes after her (though Marina would disagree!). Nothing gets between her and her novelas... unless one of her grandchildren is hungry! This is a PRINCIPAL Role with 5 Scenes and ~6 lines in this pilot episode. *** NOTE: THE ACTOR PORTRAYING ABUELA MUST SPEAK SPANISH AND ENGLISH ***

They are a science wiz who loves to live on the wild side. Always pushing Lucia to get out of her comfort zone, Kai does everything effortlessly. Kai's mother has been somewhat absent, so Kai spends most of their time at Lucia's where they are welcome with open arms. This is a SUPPORTING LEAD Role with 4 Scenes and ~10 lines in this pilot episode. *** NOTE: WE ARE SEEKING A TRANS OR NON-BINARY ACTOR TO PORTRAY KAI ***

Even with three kids and a husband that all drive her crazy, she works as a physician with her own clinic. She loves her family but would also love some alone time. Her most useful disciplinary tactics are guilt and "La Chancla." Though her exterior is tough, Marina is a warm and loving mother who can sense when her kids are in distress or simply up to no good. This is a SUPPORTING LEAD Role with 5 Scenes and approx. 18 lines in this pilot episode. *** NOTE: THE ACTOR PORTRAYING MARINA MUST SPEAK SPANISH AND ENGLISH ***

Julian has dreams of being the first Latino Man to be Prime Minister of Canada; but first, he has to survive his family! Oh, and he's got a BIG secret (no, it's not what you think!). This is a PRINCIPAL Role with 5 Scenes and approx. 5 lines in this pilot episode.
