In the end, Lopez will do whatever it takes to level the playing field and protect her officers from the metahumans.

Based on the DC characters, the series hails from Berlanti Productions and Akil Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Jorge Diaz to Star in Pilot for HBO Max’s “Head of the Class” Sitcom Reboot

Jorge Diaz is moving to the head of the class

The 37-year-old Mexican American actor has joined the cast of HBO Max’s multi-camera comedy pilot Head of the Class, a reboot of the popular 1980s ABC sitcom.

Jorge Diaz

Diaz joins a roster of new additions to the cast that includes Dior Goodjohn, Brandon Severs, Adrian Matthew Escalona and Christa Miller.

They join previously announced Isabella Gomez, Gavin Lewis and Jolie Hoang-Rappaport in the reboot which hails from American Vandal writers Amy Pocha and Seth Cohen, Bill Lawrence and his Doozer Productions; and Warner Bros. Television, which produced the original series.

Written by Pocha and Cohen, based on the original series created by Rich Eustis and Michael Elias, the reimagined Head of the Class revolves around a group of overachieving high school students who meet their greatest challenge — a teacher Alicia Adams (Gomez), who wants them to focus less on grades and more on experiencing life.

Diaz plays Elliot Olsen, a goofy English teacher who loves his job and is genuine to a fault. Goodjohn is Robyn Rook. Stem queen turned Twitch streamer, Robyn’s the defacto leader of the class – though she’d never admit it. Severs will portray Terrell Smith, is a year-round athlete, who is uber-positive and all about team mentality. Escalona is Miles Mendelson, the shy, introverted, overthinking coder, who’d rather spend time with computers than people. Miller recurs as Principal Maris, an intimidating, tough love boss that always puts the students first.

Diaz has appeared on a number of hit comedies including the CW’s Jane The Virgin, NBC’s The Good Place and Netflix’s Arrested Development. He also starred as SPC Israel Garza in Nat Geo’s Critics Choice-nominated Iraq war drama, The Long Road HomeOn the film side, Diaz portrayed Hector Estrella in Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, earning a nomination for an Imagen Foundation Award for his performance.

Escalona was first discovered in 2018, when a video of him singing “She Used To Be Mine” from the Broadway musical Waitress went viral with almost 4 million views and counting. He went on to be invited by Waitress writer and composer Sara Bareilles to make a guest appearance during her tour stop in Pittsburgh, near his home town. Head of the Class is Escalona’s first major TV role.

ABC Developing Comedy “Guerrillas,” Starring Jaime Camil

Jaime Camil is soldiering forward…

ABC is developing Guerrillas, a single-camera comedy starring the 47-year-old Mexican actor/singer and former Jane the Virgin scene-stealer and comedian Al Madrigal.

Jaime Camil

The project comes from Jennie Snyder Urman’s Sutton Street Productions and CBS Studios.

In Guerrillas, co-written by Madrigal and Matt Kellard, when Miles Flores (Madrigal), a lonely efficiency expert for an oil company, gets kidnapped in South America, he ends up working for a disorganized group of guerrilla soldiers to earn back his freedom. Camil plays the “Commandante” of the soldiers who kidnapped Miles.

Madrigal and Kelland executive produce alongside Urman and Joanna Klein via Sutton Street. Camil co-executive produces.

Guerrillas reunites Urman, Camil and Madrigal who recently worked together on the CBS comedy series Broke. Camil starred in and executive produced the sitcom, on which Madrigal recurred in addition to being a writer/co-executive producer. Urman, along with Klein, executive produced via Sutton Street.

This marks the third collaboration between Jane the Virgin creator Urman and Camil, following the CW dramedy and Broke. Meanwhile, Madrigal co-starred in the hit movie Night School, co-written by Kellard.

Alondra Delgado to Appear on Season 3 of the CW’s “All American”

Alondra Delgado is an All American…

The Puerto Rican actress has landed a recurring role on the third season of the CW’s All American.

Alondra Delgado 

Season 2 found Spencer James (Daniel Ezra), now a football state champion, with a tough decision to make. Does he stay in Beverly Hills and play for Coach Billy Baker (Taye Diggs)? Or does he move back home to South L.A., reunite with his mother, Grace (Karimah Westbrook), brother, Dillon (Jalyn Hall), and play for his father, Corey (Chad Coleman), the new head coach for the South Crenshaw Chargers?

Delgado will play Vanessa Montes, the “new girl” at school and the new head coach’s daughter. Unapologetic and confident, she doesn’t let the extra attention that comes with being the new kid phase her. She has a surprising history with one of her classmates.

Delgado most recently has recurred on FX’s Mayans M.C. Her other credits include Vida and Easy Street.

Jason Diaz to Appear on Season 3 of The CW’s “Charmed” Reboot

Jason Diaz is livin’ a charmed life…

The Latino actor has been cast as a recurring actor on the third season of the CW’s Charmed . The reboot of the fantasy drama, which originally ran from 1998-2006, is currently in production on Season 3 in Vancouver.

Jason Diaz

Diaz will play Antonio, described as “an overly confident but charming classmate of Maggie’s (Sarah Jeffery) who quickly becomes her nemesis.” The series also stars Melonie Diaz and Madeleine Mantock.

This continues Diaz’s relationship with the CW after he was recently seen on the seventh and final season of The 100 as a recurring guest star.

Additionally, he can be seen recurring on the current season of The Good Witch. His other credits include Kim’s Convenience, The Crossword Mysteries and The Handmaid’s Tale.

Alexis Bledel’s Netflix Mini-Series “Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life” Headed ‘Home’ to The CW

It’s an extra special homecoming for Alexis Bledel

The Gilmore Girls, starring the 39-year-old half-Argentinian American actress, is heading back to The CW after 20 years.

Alexis Bledel, Gilmore Girls, Lauren Graham

The network will air the four-part mini-series, which was ordered by Netflix and aired in 2016, as an event series starting on Monday November 23 and running through the week. It’ll air the series on its linear network and will also stream for free on its ad-supported app and online for 30 days.

The announcement comes on the 20th anniversary of the show’s launch on The WB.

The deal terms of the acquisition were worked out between Warner Bros., which produced the show in association with Dolly Parker Drank Here Productions, and Netflix, allowing The CW to have a window, according to Deadline.

It’s unusual for a Netflix original to be acquired by a linear network but The CW Chairman and CEO Mark Pedowitz was known to have wanted the Gilmore Girls sequel and has admitted that it was tough to have been outspent by the streamer. It also helps fill The CW’s schedule given that the network will not begin its regular 2020/21 primetime season until January.

Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life follows Bledel’s Rory, who has experienced some success in her journalism career, and Lauren Graham’s Lorelai, who still runs the Dragonfly Inn.

As Rory works through job-related struggles and Lorelai deals with some unresolved issues of her own, Emily Gilmore, played by Kelly Bishop, has been handling the loss of her husband, Richard. Emily is at a major crossroads in her life, recently widowed and trying to figure out what to do next. Richard’s death forces Emily and Lorelai to finally re-examine their own fraught relationship, and what the future holds for this mother and daughter.

Also returning were Rory’s best friend Lane Kim, played by Keiko Agena, who still plays in a band with her husband Zack, played by Todd Lowe, and is the mother of twin boys.  High school frenemy-turned-college roommate-turned-close friend Paris Geller, played by Liza Weil, also returns, and Rory’s most memorable ex-boyfriends – Logan (Matt Czuchry), Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) and Dean (Jared Padalecki) – also surface throughout the chapters.

The Dragonfly Inn’s resident head chef and co-owner, Sookie St. James, played by Melissa McCarthy, is also back along with the snooty-but-oh-so-lovable concierge Michel (Yanic Truesdale).

It was directed, written and executive produced by series creators Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino. The original ran for seven seasons on The WB and The CW with the sequel launching on Netflix in November 2016. Each episode of the sequel, which were between 88 and 102 minutes, follows the characters through one of the four seasons.

Ilana Peña Signs Overall Deal with CBS Television Studios

Ilana Peña has a new deal…

The Cuban American television creator, the mastermind behind the Disney+ series Diary of a Future President, is expanding her relationship with CBS Television Studios, signing an overall deal with the studio behind the series.

Ilana Peña

Peña also serves as co-showrunner and executive producer of the series, which has been renewed for a second season on Disney+.

The series was inspired by Peña’s own childhood, and follows a young Cuban-American girl as she navigates the ups and downs of middle school and her journey to becoming the future president of the United States.

Prior to Diary of a Future President, Peña served as a writer on the CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and a co-writer of Her Shortswith Rachel Bloom, produced by Refinery29 and Planned Parenthood.

“We first got to know Ilana when she was working on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” said Kate Adler, EVP of Comedy Development, CBS Television Studios. “She is exactly the kind of writer executives dream of: smart, funny, hard-working and inspired. We knew she had a lot to say and couldn’t wait to develop with her. Our suspicions were confirmed when we read her first draft of Diary of a Future President. Now we just need to figure out how to clone her.”

“Since day one on Diary, CBS Studios has been so supportive of my vision and voice,” said Peña. “I am incredibly grateful to the team for giving me a creative home to tell meaningful, inclusive stories.”

Peña’s plays have been produced professionally in Chicago (Goodman Theatre Latino Theater Festival) and New York (INTAR Theatre), among others.

She’s also the co-founder of See What Sticks, a monthly workshop with an audience in Los Angeles.
