Netflix has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original comedy series Gentefied from executive producer America Ferrera.

The comedy stars Joaquín Cosío, Karrie Martin, JJ Soria and Carlos Santos.

Recurring guest stars include Julissa Calderon, Annie Gonzalez, Laura Patalano, Felipe Esparza, Rafael Sigler, Jaime Alvarez, Bianca Melgar, Michelle Ortiz, Alejandro Patiño, America Ferrera and Wilmer Valderrama.

Marvin Lemus and Linda Yvette Chávez created the series, with Monica Macer serving as showrunner. They executive produce with Ferrera, Charles D. King, Kim Roth, Teri Weinberg and Aaliyah Williams. MACRO, Take Fountain Productions and Yellow Brick Road Productions produce.

Directors for the first season include Lemus, Ferrera, Marta Cunningham, Agora Guerra and Andrew Ahn.
