‘With Love’ queer Latinx series coming to Amazon Prime Video

The first trailer for Prime Video’s new queer Latinx holiday romance series “With Love” is here to bring the yuletide cheer.

From Gloria Calderón Kellett, the creator of the Latinx and queer-inclusive “One Day at a Time” remake comes “With Love,” a new, five-episode series about love in its many forms and the trouble we go through to find it.

“With Love” follows the Diaz siblings, Lily and Jorge Jr., who are on a mission to find love and purpose.

From the show description: “In each of the five episodes, Lily, Jorge Jr., and the entire Diaz family navigate the highs and lows of love during a different holiday throughout the year: Christmas Eve/Nochebuena, New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day, the Fourth of July, and Dia de los Muertos.”

The show stars Emeraude Toubia as Lily and Mark Indelicato as Jorge Jr., who is gay, and described as “the pinnacle of style, and life of the party… after years of dating he has finally found a man good enough to bring home, but he is nervous about it.”

“They’re OK that I’m down with the D as long as the D isn’t the Devil,” he tells his boyfriend Henry (played by “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”’s Vincent Rodriguez III) about his parents in the trailer.

The first episode follows Jorge introducing his family to his boyfriend on Christmas Eve/Nochebuena.

“Sometimes it feels like I’m not only dating you, but your entire family as well,” Henry tells Jorge in a later scene, something everyone dating a Latinx person will understand.

The trailer also gives us a quick glance at Isis King, who will be playing Sol Perez, Lily and Jorge’s cousin on their mom’s side. According to an earlier Deadline report, the character is “a nonbinary oncology resident who is finally opening themselves up to love with a handsome doctor they work with.”

That handsome doctor will be played by Todd Grinnell, who appeared in “One Day at a Time.” Other cast members include Rome Flynn, Desmond Chiam, Constance Marie, Benito Martinez, and Birdie Silverstein, the nonbinary child of Busy Philipps.
