Hot Hulu web novella ‘East Los High’ spans media platforms to help young Latinos make smart choices, researchers say
BUFFALO, N.Y. – “East Los High,” the trailblazing, addictive and hugely popular Hulu original series, uses a range of digital media platforms to involve its audience in the lives, scandals and emotional traumas of Latino students attending a fictional high school in East Los Angeles, California, and communication experts say it works on both the entertainment and educational levels.
The first season was streamed online in summer 2013; the second season was premiered on July 9. Only a few days later, Hulu announced their renewal of the show for a third season. As one critic said, “Latin heat – East LA never looked so good.”
It is the first-ever English language series with an all-Latino cast to address issues in Latino communities in the United States. Characters are complex and realistic, and through the program they learn to make smart lifestyle and health choices, especially in the area of sexual and reproductive health.
