45 YEARS AFTER ITS ORIGINAL PREMIERE, THE REIMAGINED “ONE DAY AT A TIME” RETURNS TO CBS, OCT. 5 AT 9:00 PM

THE NETWORK TELEVISION PREMIERE OF THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED COMEDY “ONE DAY AT A TIME,” FROM LEGENDARY PRODUCER NORMAN LEAR, DEBUTS WITH BACK-TO-BACK EPISODES

CBS will premiere the fourth season of the reimagined version of the series ONE DAY AT A TIME, 45 years after the original, from legendary producer Norman Lear, made its debut on the Network. The critically acclaimed comedy will air back-to-back episodes beginning Monday, Oct. 5 (9:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

45 years ago, I was delighted to premiere a series on CBS called ‘One Day at a Time,’” said executive producer Norman Lear. “The show was a reflection of strong family values and a beautiful demonstration of how families come in all forms with love and humor at the center. I am so thrilled to have our reimagined ONE DAY AT A TIME – this time Latinx and with Mike Royce and Gloria Calderón Kellett at the helm – and air in that same time slot this coming Monday evening. It is a full circle moment, and I couldn’t be more pleased. The times have changed, obviously the cast has changed, but the values remain the same – love and family make everything worthwhile.”

ONE DAY AT A TIME is a hilarious and heartfelt comedy that follows three generations of a Cuban-American family navigating the ups and downs of life in Los Angeles. All together under one roof, the Alvarez family includes single mom Penelope, an army veteran and nurse practitioner; her social activist daughter Elena; her popular “Abuelita’s boy” son Alex; and her old-school Cuban mother Lydia. The critically acclaimed show tackles timely issues like mental illness, immigration, sexism, homophobia and racism, among others.

In addition, Ray Romano from “Everybody Loves Raymond” makes his return to the Monday 9:00 PM timeslot on CBS, when he guest-stars in the first episode of the fourth season of the award-winning series on Oct. 5.
