Que Pasa USA

¿Qué Pasa, USA? is a cultural treasure. It is America's first bilingual situation comedy that explores the trials and tribulations faced by the Peña family in 1970s Miami as they struggle to cope with a new country and a new language. Now, 3 decades later, the show still resonates with Latinos who celebrate their "Cuban-ness" and remember life in "exilio."

What keeps the show fresh is its ode to tradition and the bonds of family, as it interconnects with life in exile - and a new-found freedom which was, at times, more than the Peña family could ever bargain for.

¿Qué Pasa, USA? is an important history lesson for all of us. It gives us a window into a time when this country experienced a cultural revolution and our differences became lost in translation.

"Que Pasa wasn’t a success because it reflected us. It was a success because it was funny. And it was touching." – Bill Teck, Generation ñ Magazine
