Netflix to Reboot Norman Lear Sitcom ‘One Day at a Time’

Thirteen Episodes Have Been Ordered

Netflix has confirmed it will be reviving Norman Lear sitcom “One Day at a Time” with a Latino cast. The original sitcom, which starred Bonnie Franklin, Valerie Bertinelli, Mackenzie Phillips and Pat Harrington, Jr., ran on CBS from 1975 to 1984 and focused on a newly divorced mother and her two daughters moving to Indianapolis. This new version will feature three generations of a family living under one roof. The scoop: The lead is a recently divorced former military mother navigating a new single life while raising her radical teenaged daughter and socially adept tween son with the “help” of her old-school Cuban-born mother (Rita Moreno) and building manager named Schneider.

Thirteen episodes of this new version of “One Day at a Time,” which follows in the footsteps of “Fuller House,” have been ordered. Lear, 93, will be one of the producers on the series.
