On My Block comes from the same creators of Awkward.
Netflix has just ordered an inner high school comedy from Awkward creator Lauren Iungerich. She co-created the series with Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft. Iungerich’s other credits include “Damaged Goods,” “Hot Mess,” and the series version of “10 Things I Hate About You.”
The half-hour comedy On My Block is a coming of age comedy. It follows four friends with street-smarts who are trying to survive high school and the pain, triumphs, and awkwardness of starting a new school.
So far Netflix has ordered 10 half-hour episodes for the first season.
The series will star Diego Tinoco as Cesar Diaz, Jason Genao as Ruby Martinez, Jessica Marie Garcia as Jasmin, Sierra Capri as Monse Finnie, and Brett Gray as Jamal Turner.
