It appears Andrea Navedo is part of the system…
CBS has put in development the drama The System, which could potentially star the Puerto Rican actress and former Jane the Virgin star.
The project, which will be executive produced by Navedo her Jane the Virgin developer/showrunner via her Sutton St. Productions and Arika Mittman, hails from Puerto Rican writer Elaine Del Valle.
Written by Del Valle, The System centers on a compassionate yet jaded social worker — a role that Navedo could potentially play — as she navigates the same broken New York City system she grew up in as she advocates to resolve issues for every family she encounters while struggling to fix her own.
The project will be produced by CBS Studios.
Navedo starred as Xiomara “Xo” Villanueva in Snyder Urman’s Jane the Virgin.
Her other credits include television appearances on Mrs. America, The Good Fight and How to Make It in America.
Del Valle is a writer/director/actress who first garnered attention with her autobiographical, one-woman stage play Brownsville Bred, which depicts her true Latina coming-of-age in Brownsville Brooklyn, NY.
Del Valle is a recent recipient of the Warner Media 150 grant and a Sundance Lab alumna whose short films can be seen on HBO.
