Starz’s smart, sexy, funny new drama, centers on Emma (Michel Prada) and Lyn (Melissa Barrera), two Mexican-American sisters who considered leaving their hometown in Los Angeles, a badge of honor. Their mother’s sudden death forces them to reconsider that stance, themselves, and their place in a world that would prefer to flatten out their neighborhood’s singular character in favor of a slick new apartment complex or artisanal coffee shop. What’s more, they quickly learn with a combination of shock and frustration, their mother’s “roommate” Eddy (Ser Anzoategui) wasn’t her roommate at all, but her wife.
In the upcoming episode – Lyn escapes the Eastside while market research in the neighborhood leads Emma to open an old wound. Mari is publicly humiliated by someone she trusted.
