one day at a time

After rebooting 80s sitcom 'Full House', Netflix is reviving another much-loved TV classic.

'One Day at a Time' was a sitcom that aired from 1975 until 1984 on CBS in the US. Bonnie Franklin starred as a divorced mother raising two teenage daughters (Mackenzie Phillips and Valerie Bertinelli) in Indianapolis.

The new version will focus on a Cuban-American family. Penelope is a separated former military mum tasked with raising a daughter who has radical views and a socially inept teenage son.

Justina Machado ('Six Feet Under') stars as Penelope, while Rita Moreno plays Lydia, Todd Grinnell is Dwayne Schneider and Isabella Gomez is Elena.

Rota Moreno will play Penelope's mother.

Norman Lear, who developed the original series, is executive producer. Lear is something of a US sitcom legend, with his credits including 'All in the Family', 'The Jeffersons' and 'Good Times'.

All 13 episodes will be available to watch from Friday.
