The Party of Five reboot is one of seven new TV projects that shine a spotlight on immigrants
Concurrent with the DACA debate, immigration has become a hot topic this pilot season. “It’s such a present issue,” says Party of Five co-creator Amy Lippman, who is behind the immigration reboot of her 1990s Fox drama. “It’s unavoidable and heartbreaking and it’s on the news every single night. And all these show creators are feeling that same incredibly rich source of storytelling.” Lippman says she doesn’t mind there being so many shows focused on immigrants on the works: “Nobody ever said, why are there two shows about white people and white people’s families? It’s at the heart of the debate about what this country is and what it’s going to be,” she adds. “It triggers all of that.”

TV shows about immigrants are suddenly all the rage
The Trump administration’s ramping up of deportations and cracking down on illegal immigration has inspired the reboots of popular TV shows, as well as potential new network series. That’s in addition to immigration being a hot topic on such shows like Fresh Off the Boat, Jane the Virgin and Superstore. Roswell and Party of Five are both being rebooted with an immigration twist, while Norman Lear’s One Day at a Time was remade with a Latino family that has an undocumented immigrant character. CBS’ In the Country We Love and CW’s Case are also shows in development that tackle undocumented immigration.
