Gina Rodriguez’s latest starring project is still alive…
ABC has renewed the hit workplace comedy series Not Dead Yet, starring the 38-year-old Puerto Rican Golden Globe-winning actress, for a second season.
From creators David Windsor and Casey Johnson, Not Dead Yet is based on Alexandra Potter’s 2020 book Confessions of a Forty-Something F**k Up.
It follows Nell Serrano (Rodriguez), a broke and newly single self-described disaster, working to restart the life and career she left behind 10 years ago. When she lands the only job she can find – writing obituaries – Nell starts getting life advice from an unlikely source.
Johnson and Windsor executive produce with Rodriguez, Dean Holland, Wonderland Sound and Vision’s McG, Mary Viola and Corey Marsh.
The series is produced by 20th Television, part of Disney TV Studios.
Rodriguez rose to acclaim while starring on CW’s Jane the Virgin. Her other credits include Someone Great, Miss Bala and I Want You Back.
