ABC's Promised Land.

  • Cecilia Suárez and Augusto Aguilera have been cast as series regulars in the drama pilot starring John Ortiz. Suárez previously starred for three seasons in Netflix's The House of Flowers. Aguilera starred in the first season of HBO Max's Made for Love.
  • Suárez will play Lettie Sandoval, the matriarch of the Sandoval family, a wealthy vineyard-owning family in the Sonoma Valley. She will do anything to keep her family, with all its fraying allegiances, intact. She is proud of the fortune the Sandovals have built, but the arrival of a figure from Lettie's past soon causes her to question whether the cost of achieving the American Dream is too high.
  • Aguilera will play Mateo Sandoval, the hardworking, highly capable general manager of the Heritage Vineyard. As the stepson to patriarch Joe Sandoval (Ortiz), he has never felt fully accepted by the wealthy, vineyard-owning Sandoval family. He finds himself at a crossroads when a young immigrant who reminds him of his roots arrives to work in the Sandoval household.
