The Internet network has given a 10-episode order to the musical drama starring Hernandez, Jenna Dewan and Madeline Stowe.

The project hails from Quantico creator Josh Safran; Annapurna Pictures; 20th Century Fox Television, which produced the original pilot; and its cable/streaming division Fox 21 Television Studios.

The majority of the cast of the Fox pilot, which was directed by Jesse Peretz, are set to continue. That includes Hernandez, Jahmil French, Dewan, Campbell Scott, Stowe, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Megan Ferguson and Evan Whitten.

The male lead, played in the Fox pilot by Raul Castillo, will be recast, and possibly the child role of his young son. As a result, there will be some reshoots on the pilot, which would be helmed by Peretz subject to availability.

Written by former Smash showrunner Safran, Mixtape is a romantic musical drama that looks at the love stories connecting a diverse, disparate group of people in contemporary Los Angeles through the music that lives inside their hearts and minds.

Hernandez is best known for her roles in Blair WitchAlien: CovenantLa La Land and The Endless.

Based on the novel by Jonathan Evision, it stars Paul Rudd as Ben, a retired writer who becomes a caregiver after suffering a personal tragedy. Six weeks into his training, Ben meets his first client, Trevor, a foul-mouthed 18-year-old with muscular dystrophy. The pair, each struggling with their own form of paralysis, sets out on an impromptu road trip to all the places Trevor has become obsessed with while watching the local news.

Along the way, they pick up a sassy runaway (Gomez) and a mother-to-be who help test the pair’s survival skills outside of their calculated existence as they come to understand the importance of hope and true friendship.

In addition to Gomez and Rudd, the film also stars Craig Roberts, Jennifer Ehle, Megan Ferguson and Frederick Weller.

Netflix, which snapped up the title’s SVOD rights for an estimated $7M, is premiering the drama on June 24.

The Fundamentals of Caring was the closing night film at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
