Diary of a Future President Trailer Revealed by Disney+

Disney+ has released the official Diary of a Future President trailer, which gives you a first look at the series premiering on the streaming service Friday, January 17.

In the new Disney+ series Diary of a Future President, we see the origin story of a future leader. Told using the narration of 12-year-old Cuban American girl Elena’s diary, this new family comedy follows her journey through the ups and downs of middle school, which set her on the path to becoming the president of the United States.

Diary of a Future President was inspired by creator Ilana Peña’s (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) childhood and is produced by Gina Rodriguez’s (Jane the Virgin) I Can and I Will Productions. Rodriguez directed the first episode and guest stars as grown-up Elena.

Diary of a Future President features up-and-coming actor Tess Romero (Blind Spot, Alternatino) as young Elena, an unabashed, ultra-observant 12-year-old with a strong point of view, who walks through the world with purpose and confidence. Charlie Bushnell, who makes his acting debut in the series, plays Bobby, Elena’s sweet and mischievous older brother. Selenis Leyva (Orange Is the New Black, Murphy Brown, Maniac) stars as Gabi, Elena and Bobby’s sharp and loving mom. Michael Weaver (Here and Now, The Real O’Neals, Notes from the Underbelly) plays Sam, a lawyer at Gabi’s firm who is in the beginnings of a relationship with her.

The executive producers are Gina Rodriguez, showrunner Robin Shorr (The Carmichael Show), Emily Gipson (Someone Great), and series creator Ilana Peña.
