Yes the rumors are true, for those who have been keeping your ears to the industry it is official, Romeo will be coming to a T.V. near you in a new comedy sitcom sold to ABC by Jada and her husband Will Smith.
The story centers around a charismatic young Dominican man, who is conflicted between traditional Dominican customs and what it means to be successful in the United States. The show takes us into a look of a character that will be different from that of the real life of Romeo, however, the Father son relationship that the show will be focused on is said to be reminiscent of the singer/now also actor’s own relationship with his Father.
has kept busy ever since disbanding with the group Aventura in what is said to be a 2 years creative break to explore their own individual talents.
The show was pitched to ABC by the mega-couple Will Smith and Jada, and as of yet does not have an official name, however we will keep you posted as we get more information.
The writers of the show will be Chris Pappas and Mike Bernier (Unhitched, One Night Stan), while the couple (Will and Jada) will serve as executive producers. Will Smith and Jada Pinket Smith have produced the films The Karate Kid and The Secret Life of Bees, and Broadway’s Fela! If this develops into a full series this will be yet another accomplishment to the unions empire, as well as add another success to Romeo Santo’s resume.
