One Day at a Time and Vida team to fight the separation of immigrant families at the border
The two Latino series are “teaming up to end family separation at the border,” One Day at a Time co-showrunner Gloria Calderón Kellett tweeted, urging writer to donate "to directly support legal services for detained separated parents and funding for their release." Vida creator Tanya Saracho used the hashtag #OneVidaataTime and a photo of her "beautiful writers room" to urge other Latino series, Jane the Virgin and ABC's upcoming Grand Hotel, to join in their fight. The border separation controversy has become heated in recent days as TV producers like Modern Family's Steven Levitan and Judd Apatow have called out Fox News' slanted coverage on the immigration debate.
