¿Qué Pasa, USA? is a sitcom that aired on PBS.

The first sitcom to be produced for the public TV network, it focuses on three generations of a Cuban-American family and their daily lives in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood. The series was bilingual, making use of both English and Spanish in its dialogue. It was also the first acting role for a young Steven Bauer (then credited on the show as Rocky Echevarria) and served as the springboard for the launch of his acting career.
