8. Diary of a Future President (2020-)
‘Diary of a Future President’ earlier worked under the title of ‘Diary of a Female President’. The series works on the premise that some of us are really focused on who we want to be, no matter how lofty the ambition. Accordingly, we recalibrate our goals and dreams, trying to achieve what we set out for. In this case, what the child sets out for is to be the president.
Now, the job is daunting, and the road to the presidency is tough, as everyone knows. Moreover, no matter what liberals would like to believe, the presidency, and politics in general, remains a male-dominated sphere. However, this girl dreams of breaking the glass ceiling to become the president. What makes her journey even more amazing is that she is a Cuban American. Being a woman of color and winning the place of the president is bound to be a tough task, but the girl has her heart in place, and the series will document her adventures.
The show comes in a timely manner when American politics is actually seeing an influx of fearless women politicians, especially those of color, paving the way for a new generation of inclusive and sensitive policies. ‘Diary of a Future President’ becomes almost inspiration and extremely topical in this regard. The show is slated to air on January 17, 2020, and Gina Rodriguez will be looking to deliver a memorable performance.

5. Awake (2020)
‘Awake’ is a dystopic story that combines the elements of a thriller, but makes sure that the story takes place on a global scale. Mark Raso directs the movie which envisions a world where a devastating situation has managed to wipe out all the electronics. A world without electronics is difficult to live in, but can be managed. One would just have to go back to the older ways. However, in this case, that return is not possible either because people lose their ability to sleep.
Naturally, this creates a problem, because the sleep-deprived people cannot function, and eventually run the risk of going mad or dying out. In this scenario, a former soldier claims to have found the solution with her daughter. With the power to save the world in their hands, the duo must battle through hardships as the fate of humanity rests with them.
The film is bound to require intense performances, and we expect Gina Rodiguez to deliver as she has on several previous instances.

(Villains’ International League of Evil) and giving back to the organization’s victims.
However, most law enforcement agencies consider Carmen as a master criminal since V.I.L.E. hides its villainous intentions under a facade and masquerade as Valuable Imports Luxury Exports.

The world of law is not easy, and often lawyers have to make decisions or represent clients who are not exactly tasteful and have committed horrible deeds.

In the upcoming movie, ‘Bobbie Sue’, we see the case where a lawyer who is always looking for a big break, gets it in an unanticipated way.
A top law firm decides to hand over the valuable client, accused of sexual harassment, to the top ambulance-chasing lawyer. For those unaware, an ambulance chaser is said to be a lawyer looking to file personal injury cases. They are basically people who are always looking to file a case or a lawsuit for some extra money. When this lawyer is strapped to a sexual harassment case, all the legal expertise must be applied, along with courtroom antics, to ensure that the client is well represented. This is where the comedy of the movie arises. Gina Rodriguez stars in the movie but not much is known about her role. However, the actress will be sure to deliver a stellar performance to stand out.
