In 1973 Los Angeles, a Chicano family rock band rises from the barrios to overnight pop stardom but still can’t escape the era’s racism, street crime, and homophobia - as they fight to stay true to themselves and their dreams.

It's Vida meets Daisy Jones & The Six with the poignant depth of This is Us - all set in the '70s - featuring original rock music and iconic cover songs from the era. The series also delivers a triumphant, coming-of-age, classic fish-out-of-water story engine - supercharged with powerful BIPOC and LGTBQ characters defying all status quos.

Poignant, romantic and triumphant, Esperanza delivers a dramatic and original Latine saga that will attract an audience ranging from Gen Z to Boomers, while generating a lucrative franchise awash with ancillary music and product opportunities.

Though occurring in the seventies, Esperanza is very much a story for our times - the social inequities we still confront, as well as the plight and struggle of the marginalized to claim their rightful place in the American Dream.

Esperanza has been recognized with over 20 placements and wins in premiere entertainment industry competitions. It ranks #1 for the month and year on The Red List for One-Hour Television in the Musical Drama category, and it has reached the Top 50 out of over 15,300 one-hour pilots tracked on the Coverfly platform.
