Recommended original series on Netflix
"Genefied" is a Netflix original series set in a predominantly Latino section of East Los Angeles. Families and friends work through the ups and downs of life, with the ever-increasing challenges of gentrification requiring them to struggle with rising rents and neighborhood changes. Visually so unlike the DC area which in some neighborhoods faces similar challenges. If you liked programs like the New Orleans "Treme", or Toronto's "Kim's Convenience," you'll like this.
