One Day At A Time vet Isabella Gomez is making her way to HBO Max for a brand new comedy series.
According to Deadline, actress Isabella Gomez has signed on to star in a brand new multi-camera comedy coming down the pipeline at HBO Max.
Titled Head of the Class, the series serves as a reboot of ABC’s hit 1980s series of the same name.
The original iteration fo the series ran from 1986 to 1991 and focused on a group of gifted students and their history teacher, Charlie Moore (played by Howard Hessman).
Gomez will be taking on the teacher role for the upcoming HBO Max reboot. Specifically, her character’s name is Alicia Adams, a first time teacher who is described as “whip-smart, funny, blunt” and as being the “high school teacher we all wish we had.”
Though she, herself, was once a star student, her hope for the gifted kids she’ll be teaching is to have them focus less on grades and more on experiencing life.
Behind the camera, HBO MAx’s Head of the Class reboot was created by Amy Pocha and Seth Cohen, who are likely best known for penning Netflix’s popular mocumentary, American Vandal. Others involved behind the scenes include Bill Lawrence of Doozer Productions, as well as original series producers Warner Bros., Television.
Isabella Gomez’s casting announcement today comes just 24 hours after we learned that Pop TV has decided not to renew One Day At A Time for a fifth season.
While we’re sure fans who know Gomez for her work playing Elena Alvarez on ODAAT are still mourning the loss of the hit Latinx sitcom, we’re suer they’ll be excited to learn it won’t be long before Gomez is back on the small screen.
Currently, there’s no word on when we can expect HBO Max’s Head of the Class reboot to debut via HBO Max.
