It’s a new connection for Otmara Marrero…
The Cuban-American actress has been cast as the lead in NBC’s comedy series Connecting.
Written and executive produced by Martin Gero and Brendan Gall, Connectingis an ensemble comedy about a group of friends trying to stay close (and sane) through video chats as they share the highs and lows of these extraordinary times.
Last month it received an eight-episode straight-to-series order.
Marrero will play Annie (fka Abby), who identifies as female. Her friends describe her as a hermit who would barely go out, even before the quarantine started.
Universal Television, a division of NBCUniversal Content Studios, is the studio.
Marrero played the female lead in Dick Wolf’s ABC drama pilot reboot New York Undercover, which was produced by Universal Television.
Her film credits include Vandal and Clementine.
