Maya & Miguel on KENW-TV

Saturdays at 4:30 p.m. on 3-3

Lively and colorful, this series chronicles the adventures — and sometimes misadventures — of 10-year-old twins Maya and Miguel Santos and features their family and friends in a richly diverse neighborhood. This situation comedy revolves around Maya’s well-intended meddling in her friends’ and family members’ lives, which ultimately creates new quandaries to fix.

While every episode takes humorous twists and turns, the underlying message is the importance of doing good for the family and the community and the philosophy that shared happiness is greater than personal gain. Sprinkled throughout the series are the values of friendship and family and a positive, culturally rich portrayal of Latino family, language and cultures.
