That's bound to get a lot of attention from this crew!
Though Arthur assumes she’s an entitled millennial, she’s actually a hard-working, enterprising, self-made woman who has poured every penny into her food truck business, which she plans to turn into an empire.
Executive Producer Bob Daily said, "We’re huge fans of Diane’s work on Orange Is the New Black and we’re excited to be introducing her as a young entrepreneur who moves into the neighborhood, driving Arthur crazy and catching Franco’s eye."
In addition to her role on Orange Is The New Black—which earned her three Screen Actors Guild Awards—Diane has starred as Lina on Jane The Virgin and in 2016, released the memoir In the Country We Love: My Family Divided, which recounts her personal story of the real plight of undocumented immigrants in this country.
How will Sofia get along with the Superior Donuts crew? And, what will happen when she meets Franco?
