By any measure, the personification of the American Dream, Pop has never forgiven him for moving his family from East LA to the calmer suburbs of Boise, Idaho. Unlike the rest of the family, Ernesto is the only one who can stand up to Pop, as their relationship reaches a boiling point.
  • Rojas will play Sarai Damian, an up-and-coming chef. She is career-focused, hella ambitious and a truth-teller. She knows what she wants and she isn't willing to compromise her dream for anyone. We meet her as she is about to be catapulted into her biggest career high, but it comes with a big price to pay.
  • Bobadilla will play Melinna Barragan, a fierce non-profit lawyer. She's down for her community, even if it means working pro-bono.

  • Everett will play Shelley Byron aka The Fog, part of the Sisterhood of Dada. Supposedly a deadly terrorist, she is charming, seductive, poetic and a bit mad.

  • Kalathara will play Holly McKenzie aka Sleepwalk, part of the Sisterhood of Dada. A light-hearted ne'er do well, she knows where the best parties are. After a wild night of partying, she usually takes a nice long nap in the ice cream truck where she works, and if she is awoken mid-nap, there is hell to pay.
