Family remains one of the most important parts of Hispanic and Latinx culture and ethnic cultures around the world and is nearly always reflected in television and film. You can take a look back at the many shows I've covered in my years with MediaVillage, from American sitcoms like Netflix's One Day at a Time, Univision telenovelas like Mi Marido Tiene Familia and even action-packed epics like Telemundo's revival of La Reina Del Sur, the love and endless devotion to family is at their core. However, with the past year's cancellations of the aforementioned One Day at a Time, The CW's Jane the Virgin, ABC's Grand Hotel and most recently, Freeform's Party of Five, Latinx families are starting to disappear from television. Thankfully, ABC's The Baker and The Beauty, the network's latest one-hour series, puts family and Latinx culture in the spotlight.
