In the trailer for new Netflix comedy On My Block, viewers get a glimpse of what life is like for a group of friends entering high school, and all the chaos and laughs that ensue. The clips in the trailer give a peek at what each character goes through as their bonds are tested.
In the series’ synopsis, Netflix writes:
On My Block, co-created by Lauren Iungerich (creator of Awkward) and Eddie Gonzalez & Jeremy Haft, is a coming-of-age comedy about four bright and street-savvy friends navigating their way through the triumph, pain and the newness of high school set in the rough inner city. The series stars Diego Tinoco (Teen Wolf) as Cesar Diaz, Jason Genao (The Get Down, Logan) as Ruby Martinez, Jessica Marie Garcia (Disney’s Liv and Maddie) as Jasmin, Sierra Capri as Monse Finnie and Brett Gray as Jamal Turner.
The series features a cast of young, fresh Black and Latinx actors in the major roles. For many of these up-and-comers, this is their first time leading a series, with some coming from supporting roles on major teen-centric shows.
Netflix ordered ten episodes of the freshman series, with a premiere date of Mar. 16.
From the clips in the trailer, this series is going to be binge-worthy once it premieres. See for yourself above.
