Ilana Peña Has Other Projects Waiting
The Disney+ series is not Peña’s only work. She wrote for the CW series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. CBS TV Studios produced that series. Peña co-wrote the Refinery29 and Planned Parenthood produced work Her Shorts with Rachel Bloom. Ilana Peña signed an overall deal with CBS TV Studios.

Peña is also a playwright, whose plays have graced the stage at Goodman Theatre Latino Theater Festival in Chicago and the INTAR Theatre in New York. Regarding her overall deal with CBS Studios Kate Adler, EVP of Comedy Development, CBS TV Studios commented, saying:
She is exactly the kind of writer executives dream of: smart, funny, hard-working and inspired. We knew she had a lot to say and couldn’t wait to develop with her. Our suspicions were confirmed when we read her first draft of Diary of a Future President. Now we just need to figure out how to clone her.”
