Diary of a Future President will be added to the Disney+ lineup on Friday, January 17. The 10 episode series is executive produced by Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin,” “Someone Great”) and Emily Gipson (“Someone Great”).
The series was inspired by the childhood of show creator Ilana Peña (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”). In the series, Elena, a Cuban-American 12-year-old girl navigates the ups and downs of middle school and begins her journey to become the future president of the United States.
Originally given the title “Diary of a Female President,” the main character of Elena is played by Tess Romero (“Blind Spot,” “Alternatino”). Elena is a strong willed 12 year old going through life with purpose and confidence.
The cast includes Charlie Bushnell, who makes his acting debut in the series, plays Bobby, Elena’s sweet and mischievous older brother. Selenis Leyva (“Orange Is the New Black,” “Murphy Brown,” “Maniac”) stars as Gabi, Elena and Bobby’s sharp and loving mom. Michael Weaver (“Here and Now,” “The Real O’Neals,” “Notes from the Underbelly”) plays Sam, a lawyer at Gabi’s firm who is in the beginnings of a relationship with her. Gina Rodriguez has a guest-starring role as adult Elena, the president of the United States. Rodriguez also directed the first episode of the series.
