On HOLLYWOOD LOVE STORY, VICELAND follows a handful of young aspiring actors, models, DJs, rappers, influencers, and even meme creators in Los Angeles who are trying to make it big. But few have as much motivation as Angel Pacheco, a DREAMer who hopes his gritty party photography could be a launchpad for a professional career—and a shot at staying in the country.
On the season finale, we met up with Angel, who runs a popular Instagram account that captures the local drug- and sex-fueled party scene. He gives us a glimpse into his life, where he simultaneously juggles his budding career, helps his parents pay rent, and waits for his pending DACA renewal.
