But seriously, would you watch a Selena Gomez-produced Latina Empire?
Because that’s exactly what the show promises. Freeform teamed up with Gomez and producer Aaron Kaplan for a drama series project of that premise. The pitch: a story through the eyes of an 18-year old girl and her struggle for greatness in a low income Latino neighborhood.Â Quite possibly the most interesting thing is that Los Angeles high school seniorÂ Ana Cobarrubias serves as a consultant on the project, which is looking for a writer, and that Selena won’t act: she’ll strictly produce.
At Freeform, Kaplan also has a comedy starring Nicki Minaj, which recently shot a pilot based on Minajâ€™s childhood. Previously, Kaplan executive produced the Freeform series Chasing Life and Kevin From Work.
Would you watch this show? It could be good, given the right tone and writer….
