Diego Boneta is joining a new pod(cast)…
The 31-year-old Mexican actor, singer and Luis Miguel: The Series star has signed on to star opposite Naomi Ackie and Rupert Friend in the rom-com musical podcast series Cupid.
The QCode production is being written and directed by Katy Cavanagh-Jupe.
Premiering summer 2022, the seven-episode piece will feature original music performed by its lead cast.
Also producing are Cavanagh-Jupe’s production company, Double Garage Films, and Boneta’s production company, Three Amigos.
The modern love story is inspired by Greek mythology. When Aphrodite’s love potion goes missing on Earth, Cupid is held responsible. Zeus strips him of his immortal powers, giving him seven days to find and return the love potion. If Cupid fails, he’ll be condemned for eternity to his father Ares’ brutal bootcamp. With help from a boy on a scooter and a quirky florist called Rose, Cupid embarks upon an epic quest to unmask the real thief and restore the stolen potion safely back to Olympus.
The podcast marks the second series from QCode to feature original music, following last year’s Electric Easy.
