One Day at a Time is a Netflix original series and re-imagining of Norman Lear’s classic 1975–84 sitcom, One Day at a Time.


Penelope Alvarez, a newly single Army Nursing Corps veteran is raising her two children: Elena and Alex with the support of her colorful Cuban mother, Lydia. Penelope works as a nurse for Dr. Leslie Berkowitz, providing her with a regular shift so she can return home to her loving family at the end of the day. However, the return to civilian and family life has been difficult, as Penelope faces a lot of unresolved issues from her time in the Army. She has not been in contact with her estranged husband, Victor, who is also an Army veteran. Currently working for a private contractor in Afghanistan, Victor is an alcoholic with post-traumatic stress disorder and a traumatic brain injury, which is what made Penelope leave him and choose to raise her children alone.
