Love Triangles With a Side of Sex-Ed: Welcome to “East Los High”


This summer, “East Los High” is coming to a computer near you.

The Hulu Exclusive show deals with the lives and loves of teens at a high school in East Los Angeles, and its all-Latino team of writers, actors and creators set out to make it a way for teens to get a dose of comprehensive sex education alongside their love triangles.

“East Los High” is something new entirely: it’s the first English-language drama explicitly for Latino teens, and it also grew out of partnerships with sexual health organizations and Latino advocacy groups like Planned Parenthood, Advocates for Youth, Voto Latino and the California Family Health Council.

The coalition advised the show’s creators about everything from integrating conversations about sexuality into their storylines, to what resources their characters could access, to what a doctor at a Planned Parenthood office should wear.

Katie Elmore Mota, the show’s Executive Producer, spoke to Campus Progress about the show’s approach to sex-ed, transmedia and the media theories informing the show’s hybrid mix of entertainment and education.

One of those theories is the Sabido methodology, which is based on the work of Miguel Sabido, a Mexican TV producer in the 1970s who began integrating conversations about things like adult literacy and family planning into his hit “telenovelas” and serial dramas.
