Ash Santos is comin’ to (Kings)town…
The 29-year-old Puerto Rican and Dominican American actress has joined the cast of Paramount+’s original series Mayor of Kingstown for Season 2.
Mayor of Kingstown follows the McLusky family, power brokers in Kingstown, Mich., where the business of incarceration is the only thriving industry. Tackling themes of systemic racism, corruption, and inequality, the series provides a stark look at their attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.
Series regulars include Jeremy Renner, Dianne Wiest, Hugh Dillon, Taylor Handley, Emma Laird, Tobi Bamtefa, Derek Webster, Nishi Munshi, Hamish Allan-Headley and Aidan Gillen.
Santos will portray Coco, a nightclub dancer at Cavo.
Production on Season 2 is currently underway in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The series returns on January 15.
The project is produced by MTV Entertainment Studios, 101 Studios and Bosque Ranch Productions.
Santos can currently be seen opposite Trevante Rhodes in Hulu’s Mike, a limited series about the life and career of Mike Tyson, and alongside Kevin Hart and Wesley Snipes in Netflix’s True Story.
On the feature side, her work includes Netflix’s Night Teeth opposite Debby Ryan and Jorge Lendeborg Jr and a leading role in the independent feature Heat of Champions. She is also known for her portrayal of Emily in American Horror Story: Apocalypse.
