“Vida” is a half-hour drama series focusing on two Mexican-American sisters from the Eastside of Los Angeles who couldn’t be more different or distanced from each other. Circumstances force them to return to their old neighborhood, where they are confronted by the past and shocking truth about their mother’s identity. Veronica Osorio has been cast in the role of Emma, with Melissa Barrera playing her sister, Lyn.
Osorio is a Venezuelan improviser and actress who moved to New York City to perform at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in 2008. She has since relocated to Los Angeles and starred in the Coen Bros feature “Hail, Caesar!,” and the upcoming Soderbergh project “Mosaic.” She has also appeared as a guest star role on NBC’s “The Carmichael Show” and Netflix’s “Girlboss.”

The casting marks a reunion between Anderson and “American Gods” executive producer Bryan Fuller — the two previously collaborated on NBC’s “Hannibal.”
In addition to “Hannibal,” Anderson recently returned to her iconic role as Dana Scully in Fox’s revival of “The X-Files,” which premiered in January, and will next be seen in the third and final season of crime thriller “The Fall,
Stars including Bruce Campbell, Lucy Lawless, Jill-Marie Jones, Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo walked the carpet while VIP guests enjoyed an outdoor bar in front of the theater and hundreds of “Evil Dead” fans filled the street for a free Iggy Pop rock concert.
