Where in the world is Gina Rodriguez? Well, you’ll soon find out…
Netflix is developing an animated reboot of the once-popular children’s series Carmen Sandiego, with the 32-year-old Puerto Rican actress and Jane the Virgin star voicing the title character.
Produced by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, the 20-episode Carmen Sandiego will feature a new crop of international capers, as well as a look into Carmen’s past to reveal who she is and why she became a super thief.
Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) will voice Player, Carmen’s chief accomplice and friend.
The character debuted in a 1980s computer game franchise Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? and probably is best known for the Greg Lee-hosted game show that aired on PBS from 1991-95.
Before her breakout role on Jane the Virgin, Rodriguez, a Golden Globe winner for her performance on the CW series, previously appeared on television in Rizzoli & Isles, Longmire, The Bold and the Beautiful, The Mentalist and Happy Endings.
