Today at the Television Critics Association (TCA) Summer 2018 Press Tour, Starz announced Roberta Colindrez (“I Love Dick,” “The Deuce”) will be joining the cast of “Vida” as a new series regular in an expanded 10-episode second season during which series creator and executive producer Tanya Saracho will make her directorial debut.
The STARZ Original series “Vida” from Showrunner and Executive Producer Tanya Saracho (“How to Get Away With Murder,” “Looking,” “Girls”) centers around two Mexican-American sisters from the Eastside of Los Angeles who couldn’t be more different or distanced from each other. Circumstances force them to return to their old neighborhood, where they are confronted by the past and shocking truth about their mother’s identity. Season one received wide critical acclaim and was an official episodic selection of the 2018 SXSW Film Festival. The half-hour Latinx series has received a 10-episode second season order. Colindrez will play “Nico” a new bartender at the family bar.
