Jackie Guerra hopes to take her tremendous good fortune as far as she can. Guerra, 28, joins the ranks of several other stand-up comedians as she heads up a new sitcom this fall, WB's "First Time Out." It's a look at life in L.A. through the eyes of a young Latina.

We rent a lot of foreign movies, a lot of old classics. We like very campy stuff, like "Valley of the Dolls." Saturday morning: I go to my spinning class, the latest workout craze. It's sort of like a stationary bike and there's music.
