Using analytics tracking, a viewer survey and a laboratory experiment, researchers studied the audience reach, engagement, and impact of the Emmy-nominated program’s first season. The results suggest the program’s sexual and reproductive messaging had a strong cognitive, emotional and social influence on its target audience of young Latinos.
