WATCH: The First Trailer for ABC's New Show 'Cristela' is Here!


The first trailer for ABC's Latino-centric new series is here! 

Cristela chronicles the life of a Mexican-American woman juggling her sixth year as a law student, her insane home obligations, and the multiple jobs she needs to pay her tuition. On top of all that craziness, Cristela, played by breakout comedienne Cristela Alonzo, lives in a cramped home with her sister Daniela, her brother-in-law Felix, and their two children. 

Of course, madness ensues as Cristela chases her dreams of a career in law.... and attempts to please her Mexican-American familia. 

The comedy, which co-stars Carlos Ponce, Terri Hoyos, and Andrew Leeds, premieres on ABC on Friday, October 10 at 8:30 pm! 

Watch the trailer below! Will you be tuning in?
