Tv Season Info

In the premiere season of this comedy-drama based on a telenovela, a chaste young woman named Jane (Gina Rodriguez) is accidentally impregnated via artificial insemination. She struggles to break this news to her deeply religious family, as well as to her devoted fiancé, Michael (Brett Dier). Further complicating the situation, she develops a mutual attraction to the baby's father, Rafael (Justin Baldoni), a childless married man who desperately wants this baby in his life. More family drama erupts when Jane learns that famous actor Rogelio de la Vega (Jaime Camil) is her own biological father, and she gets angry at her mother, Xo (Andrea Navedo), for keeping this secret from her for all of these years.

Rodriguez lights up every scene she's in, never more so than in the closing one for Monday's premiere.

There's the same soap opera pile-up of circumstances that made me love Ugly Betty.

Oh, the show could be awful, with lots of high-strung farce and bad jokes about the Virgin Mother. But it's quite the opposite: a show that, with good humor and intelligence, respectfully follows a woman's journey into the unexpected and unknown

Jane is, simultaneously, a soap-streaked telenovela, a sly and tender family drama, a noisy comedy, a passable cop thriller, a metafictional head trip, and a genuinely affecting romance.
