Diary Of A Female President Coming To Disney+
Every day, we learn more and more about the vast array of programming coming to Disney+. On Thursday, July 11, the streaming service announced details about Diary of a Female President.
Gina Rodriguez will recur on the upcoming Disney+ series Diary of a Female President and will direct the first episode, the streaming service said today.
The news comes as production kicks off on the show and its main cast is set… Told from the narration of her diary, the series follows 12-year-old Cuban-American Elena (Romero) as she navigates the ups and downs of middle school and begins her journey to become the future president of the United States. Unabashed, semi-dweeby, ultra-observant, and with a strong point of view, she walks through the world with purpose and confidence.

Oh My Disney added more detail:
We’re also excited to announce that Gina Rodriguez will also guest star in the series! She will have a recurring guest-starring role as adult Elena, currently on her Presidential campaign trail.
Playing Elena is up-and-coming actress Tess Romero (Blind Spot, Alternatino), with Charlie Bushnell as her older brother, and Selenis Leyva (Orange is the New Black, Maniac) as their loving mom, Gabi. And Michael Weaver (Here and Now, Notes from the Underbelly) plays Sam, a lawyer at Gabi’s firm who is in the beginnings of a relationship with her. Alongside Gina Rodriguez are Executive Producer Emily Gipson (Someone Great), creator Ilana Pena (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), and show runner Robin Short (The Carmichael Show).
