It’s a united effort for Christina Vidal.
The 37-year-old Puerto Rican actress has been cast as a lead opposite Will Sasso and Jane Curtin in United We Fall, ABC’s family comedy from Making History creator Julius Sharpe, Seth Gordon, Sony Pictures Television and ABC Studios.
Written by Sharpe and directed by Mark Cendrowski, United We Fall is a profoundly realistic, multicultural sitcom that shows how, when two people, Bill (Sasso) and Jo (Vidal) with young children and overzealous extended families truly love each other, barely anything is possible.
Sasso’s Bill is a confident, analytical yet funny and emotional father and husband. Bill and his wife, Jo, both have college degrees, great careers, and a solid, loving marriage. However, since having their second kid, they can barely make it out the door. He tries to hold it together because he loves his family more than anything, and, deep down, he knows his wife is slightly too cool to be with him.
Vidal’s Jo, the youngest of ten siblings, is not a “traditional” mom. Although she is a strong female role model for her kids, she’s cool, sarcastic, and does things her own way, often bringing her into conflict with other parents and her own extended family.
Vidal played the series regular role of Detective Valeria Chavez in Training Day, which aired for one season on CBS. She was most recently seen in a recurring role on Sneaky Pete, and previously recurred on Limitless and Code Black, among other credits.
