The casting couch has had a lot of action from Latinos this week. Singer/actress Christina Milian is headed back to the small screen with her very own reality show “Christina Milian Turned Up” on the E! network. The docu-series will follow the mother-of-one’s “career, love life and personal relationships.” Does this mean we will see her romance with Lil Wayne play out on the show?
For a little added twist, “Partners” star Kelsey Grammar is producing the series set to premiere in 2015.
It’s my guess that Guillermo Del Toro is inspiring more latinos to delve into the supernatural with the popularity of his FX series, “The Strain.” Deadline.com confirmed Silvio Horta (“Ugly Betty“) is developing a magical new series for NBC.
Horta will serve as executive producer and writer of “The Curse of the Fuentes Women” a one-hour drama following a young man who washes up on Miami Beach, claiming to be a long-lost family member from Cuba. His arrival breathes new energy into the lives of his grandmother Esperanza, daughter Lola, and granddaughter Soledad.
The Starz network drama “Power” nabbed Cuban actor David Fumero as a series regular for season two. According to Deadline, Fumero is set to play Mike Sandoval, the handsome new Chief of the Crime Division, who has moved from Southern California to NY to make sure this prominent investigation is run correctly.
Colombian singer Juanes is also headed to the small screen as a guest star on the CW’s “Jane the Virgin.” Entertainment Weekly reports he will play a music producer and smooth-talking ladies’ man who considers producing a demo record for Jane’s (Gina Rodriguez) pop-music obsessed mother Xiomara (Andrea Navedo).
