East Los High started off as a web series and reached the holy grail of short form media productions by landing a series deal with a larger company (Hulu) with bigger budgets. This was an exceptional feat considering that most web series have failed over the past decade and East Los High defied the odds with a Latino angle and story set in the cosmopolitan city of Los Angeles. It turns out high school puppy love and drama are a universal theme that has helped East Los High gain a wider audience beyond just Latino audiences.
Traditionally shut out from mainstream studios and media, Latinos are finding a powerful medium in web series in order to showcase their talents, voices, culture, and inclusion in American society.
