Due to the recent guidance on the Coronavirus, the upcoming “An Evening with Gina Rodriguez and Diary of a Future President” special event at the Paley Center in Los Angeles, has been cancelled.
The event was due to take place on May 1st at 7pm and no replacement date for the event has been announced. It’s been cancelled because the Centers for Disease Control has issued a new recommendation advising that events and gatherings of 50 people or more be postponed for the next eight weeks.
Here is the event’s original description:
In her first major project following her groundbreaking work on Jane the Virgin, Golden Globe-winner Gina Rodriguez returns as the executive producer and occasional star of the heartwarming multigenerational Disney+ comedy series Diary of a Future President. Created by Ilana Peña, the series imaginatively traces the origin story of a future president of the United States using narration from twelve-year-old Cuban-American girl Elena’s (Tess Romero) diary entries.
Praised by the Hollywood Reporter for its “positive messages and admirably progressive streak,” Diary features a top-notch cast including Selenis Leyva (Orange Is the New Black) and Michael Weaver (The Real O’Neals); and making his acting debut in the series, Charlie Bushnell; as well as stand-out guest performances by Aisha Tyler, among others. Gina Rodriguez and members of the cast and creative team join us for a screening and conversation about the inspirations for, and creative process behind, this winning series with an original creative voice.
