The Miami-born culture of “Chongas” is set to take center stage on a new multi-camera comedy series in development for CBS, courtesy of comedy duo Mimi Davila and Laura Di Lorenzo — also known as “The Chonga Girls.” This is exciting to many as it will give a glimpse into the world of Chonga culture, a facet of Miami life that’s often overlooked in mainstream media. 

Dubbed The Chonga Girls, the project follows the adventures of Mimi and Laura, two audacious childhood friends from Miami who set their sights on Hollywood stardom. However, their dreams take an unexpected turn when they find themselves working at a makeup counter in a department store just off the Walk of Fame. According to Deadline, the series promises to be a hilarious exploration of friendship, ambition, and the quirks of Miami culture. 

Mimi Davila, a talented Cuban/Bulgarian actress, comedian, and writer, leads the charge alongside her creative partner (and bestie) Laura Di Lorenzo, a Venezuelan Miamian renowned for her work on Selena: The Series. Together, they bring authenticity and humor to the portrayal of Chonga culture, shedding light on a community that’s often misunderstood. 

Under the helm of Marlena Rodriguez, the series promises to deliver laughs while showcasing the resilience and spirit of Miami’s Latine community. With executive producers including Wilmer Valderrama and Al Madrigal, the project underscores a commitment to uplifting underrepresented voices in Hollywood. 

The ‘Chonga Girls’ Give Bicultural Latinas a Space in Media Representation

For someone who grew up in Miami like myself, the emergence of Chonga culture on a national platform is both exciting and nostalgic. Chongas, known for their Spanglish banter, Miami accent, and distinctive wardrobe, represent a unique slice of Miami life that’s often imitated but rarely celebrated. As a former self-proclaimed Chonga, it’s a rite of passage in Miami to embrace this unapologetic identity. 

This project is a reminder that Miami’s cultural landscape is rich, diverse, and deserving of recognition on a national scale. With The Chonga Girls, audiences can expect to laugh, learn, and perhaps gain a newfound appreciation for the spirit of Miami’s Chonga community. Ya tu sabe.
