Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith, along with business partner John Lassiter, have sold ABC a comedy about singer Anthony “Romeo” Santos.
The television show, tentatively called the “Untitled Romeo Project,” is loosely based on the the singer’s life with his father.
According to Hollywood Reporter, “The project, which hails from ABC Studios and their Overbrook Entertainment, centers on a charismatic Dominican-American (Romeo) from Washington Heights, who tries to please his very traditional, immigrant father while also creating a life that reflects his new vision of the American Dream.”
