Gina Rodriguez To Produce Two New Series Telling Stories of Immigrants

Gina Rodriguez is over here busting out not just one, but TWO shows about immigrants.

According to Deadline, the Jane The Virgin star and her I Can & I Will Productions company, are working with CBS TV on Illegal.

The series will be written and co-executive produced by JtV writer Rafael Agustin and is based on his real-life experience. Born in Ecuador and grew up in America. It wasn’t until he was in high school that he learned that he and his parents were undocumented.

Illegal is described as a one-hour dramedy about sixteen-year-old Rafael, “a charming but bumbling high school student just trying to survive puberty. But when this all-American teenager discovers that he is not American at all, his perfect Honor Roll world is turned upside down.”

The second series is a medical drama Have Mercy.

Based on a German show called Dr. Illegal, the show will tell the story of a Latina doctor who immigrates to Miami and takes a job working as a nurse’s assistant, since she’s not licensed to work as a doctor.

But she risks everything to give back to the community when she opens a makeshift clinic in her apartment.

We are here for both of these shows. When can we start binging?
