Allen Maldonado is (sneaker)heading to Netflix…
Netflix has picked up Sneakerheads, a six-episode comedy series starring the 37-year-old Afro-Puerto Rican actor and Andrew Bachelor.
Hailing from creator Jay Longino and Complex Networks, the Netflix original series is set to premiere on September 25.
The series centers around Devin (Maldonado), a former sneakerhead turned stay-at-home dad who gets back in the game only to quickly find himself five G’s in the hole after falling for one of old friend Bobby’s (Bachelor) get-rich-quick schemes. Desperate to get his money back before his wife finds out he’s fallen off the wagon, Devin enlists the help of a ragtag group of fellow shoe lovers on his global hunt for the elusive “Zeroes,” the holy grail of hard-to-find kicks.
The series also stars Jearnest Corchado, Matthew Josten, Yaani King Mondschein, Justin Lee, and Aja Evans.
Sneakerheads is a Complex Networks production.
Maldonado’s previous television credits include The Last O.G., Black-ish, You’re The Worst and The Young and the Restless.
