Gina Rodriguez is a real player(s)…
The 36-year-old Puerto Rican actress and Golden Globe-winning star of Jane The Virgin will star in Players, a romantic comedy from Netflix.
Trish Sie is set to direct the feature from a script by Whit Anderson.
The plot follows Chicago sportswriter Mack (Rodriguez) who has spent years devising successful hook-up “plays” with best friend Adam (Wayans Jr.) and their crew, but when she unexpectedly falls head-over-heels for one of her targets (Ellis), they all must learn what it takes to go from simply scoring to playing for keeps.
Rodriguez and Molly Breeskin will serve as executive producers under their I Can and I Will Productions.
Rodriguez, who starred in Netflix’s Someone Great, which she also served as a producer, has an upcoming project slate that includes the Amazon features I Want You Back and comedy-adventure Lost and Found as well as Netflix family series, Lost Ollie.
