Romeo Santos is getting ready for a new “adventure”… The lead singer of bachata group Aventura will star in a new ABC comedy series.
Produced by Will Smith, the still-untitled project centers on a single Dominican-American man trying to please his harsh immigrant father while pursuing his own American dreams.
“The show is about the different beliefs and how we think,” said Romeo during a Q&A session at the Association of Hispanic Advertising Agencies (AHAA)conference in Miami on Wednesday. “It’s a show about the difference between how we think and how our parents think.”
Even though this will be the 30-year-old Dominican-American singer’s first acting stint, Santos isn’t ending his music career.
The Bronx, New York native is set to release his first solo album, “Formula Vol. 1” on November 8. It’ll feature collaborations with Lil Wayne, Usher and Pitbull among others, and include tracks in English and Spanish.
