About 18% of Americans are of Latinx descent. Yet the cancelation of One Day at a Time leaves just three out of 495 current scripted series on TV with a focus on Latino Americans that doesn't delve into criminal or gangster stereotypes: Vida, On My Block and the departing Jane the Virgin. Vida creator Tanya Saracho worries her show could be next: "Right now, there’s four (Latinx series) left that aren’t cartel narratives. Isn’t that so offensive to us? It’s not that I don’t want them to exist, but yes … and? I don’t know how to get the gatekeepers to care about us more than we’re being cared about in the country. It’s not just Hollywood and television. It’s something we’re experiencing as Latinx in this country. So how to make them see beyond that?" One Day at a Time co-creator Gloria Calderón Kellett adds: "We do need to be more vocal about what we want. Social media matters so much more than I thought — social media basically saved our show from season one to season two — so you are more powerful on your laptops than ever before. It can come from a positive place, but we really need them to know how important it is to us. Because I don’t think they know. I’ve gotten so many tweets and emails that say, 'I saw the Café Bustelo on top of the refrigerator and I started crying. And I didn’t know why!' It’s like, I exist, I am here, I take up space, I matter."
