Storyline

In her sixth year of law school, Cristela is finally on the brink of landing her first big (unpaid) internship at a prestigious law firm. The only problem is that her pursuit of success is more ambitious than her traditional Mexican-American family thinks is appropriate. She's stuck straddling the old culture she's trying to modernize at home with her working-class family and the modern world she's trying to embrace in her professional career. Breakout comedian Cristela Alonzo stars in this hilarious comedy about laughing your way down the path to the new American dream. Written by ABC Publicity

love the show
10 October 2014 | by jebrito-129-805273See all my reviews

OMG we needed a show like this..... Carlos is hot,,, I also love Maria Canals-Barrera, she is a true Mexican with Carlos. when i see Gabriel Iglesias i just laugh he is a great comedian.. good luck on the show... Go Cowboys!!! I'm from Dallas Texas It will be nice if they show Dallas in the show . . . . . . . . . . The clothes on Carlos are hot he looks so good@ I will only be watching the show for him and Maria canals I'm just waiting for George Lopez to appear that would be awesome... I just don't really like that Criselda is still living at home. Mexican parents usually kick kids out at 18 with a career or send them back to Mexico. that is not really true what you are showing.
