Jane The Virgin is a show that occupies a unique space on network television: it’s a story about a young Latina woman and three generations of her family, it’s a soap opera-comedy-drama hybrid adapted from a 2002 Venezuelan telenovela and it’s a critical darling that won The CW their first-ever mainstream award.
