A new web series Los Americans
The eight-part series focuses on a multi-generational, middle-income Latino family living in Los Angeles. The Valenzuela family deals with many issues facing American families today, including: unemployment, cultural identity and alcoholism. The series features Latino-Americans in a realistic and complex manner seldom seen on television or the Internet.
The series is written and directed by Dennis Leoni, who is best known for having created and produced the award-winning, television series Resurrection Blvd. for Showtime. Los Americans feature Esai Morales (Caprica, Jericho, La Mamba), Lupe Ontiveros (Southland, Family Guy) Raymond Cruz (The Closer, Breaking Bad) and Tony Plana (Ugly Betty, 24).
Los Americans is an original production of One Economy Corporation and its video production company, V-Studios. V-Studios is managed by award-winning director, Robert Townsend. One Economy Corporation, a global non-profit, provides online content relevant and useful to underserved communities through PIC.TV and www.thebeehive.org.

Los Americans is funded through a grant of the Broadband Technology Opportunity Program, made possible by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to promote broadband adoption in underserved communities. One of the major barriers to broadband adoption is the lack of relevant online content.
