“Vida” is a half-hour 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 surprising truth about their mother’s identity. Melissa Barrera and Mishel Prada star as the two sisters, Lyn and Emma.
“Vida” also stars Chelsea Rendon, Maria-Elena Laas, Ser Anzoategui and Carlos Miranda. The series premiere touches on social challenges that face many of the East L. A. neighborhoods – classism, sexism, homophobia, colorism, etc. Many of these factors were experienced in real life by the series creator, Tanya Saracho.
