Gentefied is a 10-episode bilingual series that follows three Mexican-American cousins -- Erik (JJ Soria), Ana (Karrie Martin) and Chris Morales (Carlos Santos) -- as they attempt to forge their own paths, while also balancing their cultural traditions and identity. Set in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights, the Spanglish dramedy sees the characters struggle with how changing society and gentrification have threatened their beloved area, their immigrant grandfather, Pop (Joaquin Cosio), and the family taco shop.
