Hulu's "East Los High" original series is similar to Mexican telenovelas with its emphasis on love, sex, violence and revenge, but it differs in that it also tries to offer its Latino teen target audience messages of responsibility. "You start out with a very salacious soap opera and get them in," said Evangeline Ordaz, a co-writer of the series. "Then hit them up with, 'If you're going to have sex, be responsible.'"
