Sierra Capri, Jason Genao, Brett Gray, Diego Tinoco, Jessica Marie Garcia and Julio Macias star in On my block, a comic age comedy about four bright and street-savvy friends navigating through the triumph, pain and novelty of high school in the harsh inner city.

The series was a breakout hit for Netflix, named by the streamer to its No. 1 most binged show in 2018 and beat e.g. Making a killer, 13 reasons why and Haunting of Hill House.
