Filmmaker Mariem Pérez will become the first Puerto Rican female chosen to direct, write and edit one of PBS’ American Masters series about Rita Moreno under the working title ‘The Girl Who Decided to Go for It.’

An air date has not been announced yet.

The series, which took seven months to film, has already spent a month in post-production editing and will spend one more month being edited, color corrected and getting an animation added. During the 14 days that Pérez spent filming Moreno, she was able to take note of how friendly this Oscar winner from Juncos, Puerto Rico really is.
