Freeform has picked up to series the pilot for its immigration-themed Party of Five, a reboot of the popular 1990s family drama that revolves around Mexican-American siblings. It hails from the original series’ creators Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman and studio Sony Pictures TV.

Co-written by Lippman, Keyser and newcomer Michal Zebede, the hourlong drama series will follow the five Acosta children (fka Buendia) as they navigate daily life struggles to survive as a family unit after their parents are suddenly deported to Mexico. The series stars Brandon Larracuente as Emilio, Emily Tosta as Lucia, Niko Guardado as Beto and Elle Paris Legaspi as Valentina.

I hope they have a twist of the parents dying trying to come back to the USA after being deported. Dead parents were a key part of the original and simply deported isn't the same, especially in this day and age where communication is so easy.

Interesting and timely premise, but everyone looks so sad. In every scene. Is this going to be even more of a downer than the original?
