Jaime Camil is on the road to Riches…
The 45-year-old Brazilian-Mexican actor and Jane the Virgin scene-stealer will headline and executive produce Rags to Riches, a multi-camera comedy at CBS from Jane the Virgin creator/executive producer Jennie Snyder Urman’s Sutton St. Productions.
In Riches To Rags, written by Will & Grace executive producer Alex Herschlag, when an outrageously wealthy trust fund baby is cut off by his father, he and his wife move into her sister’s Reseda condo where they delight in the “charms” of the working class but mourn the loss of being the 1% of the 1%.
Camil executive produces via his production company ECABA alongside Herschlag, Urman and Klein as well as Jane exec producer Ben Silverman.
Camil himself often had been talked about for a potential Jane spinoff built around his larger-than-life character, telenovela star Rogelio De La Vega.
