“We can do better. ABC can do better“, Luis Guzman speaks up!
It’s only been a few days since ABC made the decision to cancel The Baker and the Beauty, but backlash has been swift and voices are popping up everywhere criticizing the network’s decision.
A petition started by fan, Dana Pulsinelli, has already reached 109,000 signatures and is still growing.
(Did you sign the massive petition?)
Can the show be saved?

Well I’m sure you heard that @abcnetwork cancelled @bakerandthebeauty yet another show with an entire Latino cast! This is bad news for the Latino community! Why doesn’t @abcnetwork give it more of a chance for our gente to find the show?! And “gente” where are you guys? Show up and get loud. Representation matters on television! This was a sweet show about a good family! And one of the only Latino shows out there! We need this show to find another home! Show your support with the hashtags below and let’s flex our community power! ✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽. #Repost @thereallisavidal ・・・ Hey peeps! Hoping everyone is doing well staying healthy and safe as most of you know ABC decided to cancel our show the Baker and the Beauty, sad… but the good news is that it isnt over yet, we are still hopeful and NBC Universal is shopping or show to other platforms such as #peacocktv , #netflix , #Amazon , #Prime etc… There are over 500 television shows on air, and ZERO latino shows on network TV right now, and only a handful on streaming. The Baker and the beauty is a well written diverse show about a Latin family preppers denting our Latino culture in a positive light. It pretty much is for every family to watch. It would be tragic if this show just disappears at a time when the diversity issue in our country is front and center. When the lack of inclusion is at an all time high as well. We have two weeks to find a new home for our beautiful show the Baker and the Beauty…. please help support us and bring attention in anyway you can to help us save our show… we love you guys and we are grateful for you! 🙏🏽💪🏽💋👊🏽😘 Please use these hashtags #savethebakerandthebeauty #renewthebakerandthebeauty
Today, another fantastic actor spoke up – and sent one hell of a powerful message to ABC. Luis Guzman posted a succinct video sharing his displeasure with ABC’s decision…

The message was loud and clear.
I think you made a mistake. I’d just like to know out of curiosity – how many latinos were in the room as part of making that decision?
Well said, Louey… isn’t that the million dollar question?
