The series tells the story of James St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), a ruthless drug-dealer under the nickname Ghost, who wishes to leave the criminal world in order to support his legitimate business interests as a nightclub owner. James aims to balance these two lives, while avoiding police capture, and looks to resolve his personal life as his marriage crumbles.

The cast Tanya Saracho (Creator/Executive Producer/Showrunner), Melissa Barrera (Lyn), Mishel Prada (Emma), Ser Anzoategui (Eddy) and Chelsea Rendon (Marisol) all were present to talk about the importance of a this series Vida and why it has become a hit show.
