Promised Land | Christina Ochoa Tells Us About The Drama Filled Multi-Generation Latinx Series [Exclusive Interview]

PROMISED LAND – “A Place Called Heritage” – Alliances and loyalties are tested as Joe Sandoval assesses the future of his family-run Sonoma Valley wine business. Just a few hundred miles south but a world away, Carlos Rincón and sisters Juana and Rosa Sánchez cross the U.S. border from Mexico in search of a better life on the series premiere of “Promised Land,” airing MONDAY, JAN. 24 (10:01-11:00 p.m. EST), on ABC. (ABC/Danny Delgado) CHRISTINA OCHOA

ABC’s Promised Land debuts tonight on ABC. In television and film, we are always looking for representation in the Latinx community. Promised Land gives us a look at the lives of one particular family from a multi-generational view. From the moment that a group crosses over to the United States all the way to the moment where a now successful immigrant looks down on his own. In between that journey, a lot happens, including building a career and a family. With a new generation born, perspectives will obviously be different from their parents who had to risk everything to come to the United States. How do these different views of the world co-exist? How does that affect a family who at the time seems to have everything? Also, what happens when that status is threatened?

Promised Land includes a variety of characters that will allow us to explore the questions above. The way that they are all connected is a somewhat complicated family tree that is not so different from real-life families. For a proper setting, this series takes place in California’s Sonoma Valley. If you are familiar with the area you know how rich with vineyards this area is. A perfect setting as it is a lot of migrant workers that do a lot of the work tending to the grapes in the region that then are turned into some of the fabulous wine that we all love.
