“Diary of a Future President” to Debut on Disney+ on January 17

Diary of a Future President

The Disney+ streaming service just keeps getting better! We have been enjoying The Imagineering Story and The Mandalorian each week, and now we’re getting more new content! This January, I Can and I Will Productions and CBS Television Studios will be bringing “Diary of a Future President” to Disney+!

The series follows Elena, a Cuban-American 12-year-old girl as she navigates the ups and downs of middle school and begins her journey to become the future president of the United States. Her diary will narrate the series and give us insight into the young life of a future female president.

The series stars up-and-coming actor Tess Romero (“Blind Spot,” “Alternatino”) who portrays young Elena, an unabashed, ultra-observant, 12-year-old with a strong point of view, who walks through the world with purpose and confidence. Charlie Bushnell, who makes his acting debut in the series, plays Bobby, Elena’s sweet and mischievous older brother.  Selenis Leyva (“Orange Is the New Black,” “Murphy Brown,” “Maniac”) stars as Gabi, Elena and Bobby’s sharp and loving mom. Michael Weaver (“Here and Now,” “The Real O’Neals,” “Notes from the Underbelly”) plays Sam, a lawyer at Gabi’s firm who is in the beginnings of a relationship with her.  Gina Rodriguez has a guest-starring role as adult Elena, the president of the United States.  Rodriguez also directed the first episode of the series.
