Emeraude Toubia will be sharing the love…
The 32-year-old half-Mexican actress has been cast as the female lead in With Love, Amazon’s one-hour romantic comedy series from Gloria Calderón Kellett, her GloNation Studios and Amazon Studios.
Created and written by Calderón Kellett, With Love follows the Diaz siblings, Lily (Toubia) and Jorge, who are on a mission to find love and purpose. The Diaz siblings cross paths with seemingly unrelated residents during some of the most heightened days of the year — the holidays.
Toubia’s Lily is a hopeless romantic with a tightknit Mexican-American family who is on a mission to find real love after breaking up with her perfect-on-paper boyfriend.
The series, which falls under One Day at a Time creator Calderón Kellett’s overall deal with Amazon, had been fast-tracked since the pitch stage with the goal to launch it during the 2021 holiday season.
All episodes will be written and executive produced by Calderón Kellet. The pilot episode will be directed and executive produced by Meera Menon. With Love is produced by Kellett’s production company, GloNation and Amazon Studios.
Toubia, best known for her series-regular role as Isabelle Lightwood on Freeform’s Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments, is set to star next alongside Gina Rodriguez and Karla Souza in the road-trip comedy feature Like It Used to Be.
She will serve as co-executive producer on Lifetime Christmas movie Holiday in Santa Fe.
