Jose Moreno Brooks is ready for a little melodrama in his life…
The Latino semi-pro-soccer-player-turned-actor has landed a series regular role in NBC’s 13-episode single-camera comedy series Telenovela.
Starring and executive produced by Eva Longoria, the series is based on an idea by Longoria.
Directed by Steve Pink, Telenovela stars Longoria as popular diva Ana Maria, star of Latin America’s most beloved telenovela who strives to stay on top in a world where the drama on-camera is nothing compared to the drama off-camera.
Moreno Brooks will portray Gael Garnica, a masculine soap star who happens to be gay, married and not in the closet. He’s one of Ana’s best friends.
Jencarlos Canela and Diana Maria Riva co-star.
Longoria and Ben Spector executive produce for Universal Television. The project is written/executive produced by Chrissy Pietrosh and Jessica Goldstein.
Moreno Brooks’s other television credits include appearances on Big Time Rush, The Nine Lives of Chloe King, The Game and One Bad Choice.
