Jane the Virgin centers around… a girl named Jane who is a virgin.
It stars breakout actress Gina Rodriguez as a young women driven to become a teacher and maybe someday a writer, while supporting herself as a new Miami hotel.
She watches telenovelas with her mother and her grandmother and she has a slightly unrealistic view of romance, though it’s one respected and supported her her fiancé, Michael: Jane is going to save herself until marriage.
She has her life mostly mapped out and it’s mostly going very well until she receives some unsettling news:
During a check-up with her physician, Jane learns she was accidentally artificially inseminated with a specimen meant for someone else. Don’t you just hate it when that happens!
As a result, Jane is faced with the most important decisions she’ll ever make. Will she keep the baby? Where will things possibly go now?!?
It’s as if Jane is now living inside the telenovelas she has always loved. But that’s not where she wants to be.
While many may have been turned off and/or confused by the titled “Jane the Virgin,” we sincerely hope they have the premiere a shot.
Jane the Virgin Season 1 Episode 1 was funny, sentimental, touching, surprising and generally a hoot to watch. And Gina Rodriguez is an absolute star. Remember her name, folks. She’s the real deal.
