Disney+ re-elects Future President
Diary of a Future President debuted in January
Streamer Disney+ has ordered a second season of Diary of a Future President from CBS Television Studios and Gina Rodriguez’s I Can And I Will Productions.
The 10-episode second season of the original scripted series, whose first season debuted in January, will stream exclusively on Disney+.
The show is executive produced by Rodriguez along with creator Ilana Peña (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Keith Heisler and Molly Breeskin. Peña and Heisler are co-showrunners.
Diary of a Future President follows the adventures of Elena Cañero-Reed as she navigates the ups and downs of middle school on her journey to become the president of the US. It stars Tess Romero, Charlie Bushnell, Selenis Leyva and Michael Weaver, as well as Jane the Virgin star Rodriguez.
“Optimistic, heartfelt stories that inspire are fundamental to our content, and creator Ilana Peña’s series delivers on these attributes in spades,” said Agnes Chu, senior VP of content at Disney+.
“It has been wonderful to partner with the extraordinary Gina Rodriguez to champion specific, diverse points of view and we look forward to seeing even more of President Cañero-Reed in this next chapter.”
David Stapf, president of CBS Television Studios, added: “We’re thrilled to partner with Disney+ on a series that showcases strong women both in front of and behind the camera. They’ve been incredible champions of the show from day one.”
