Ana Villafañe Cast as the Lead in CBS Comedy ‘History Of Them’, A Potential Latinx Comedy Series
Ana Villafañe -better known for her interpretation of Gloria Estefan in the Broadway musical On Your Feet!- has been cast as the lead of Sony Pictures TV Studios and CBS TV Studios new comedy, History Of Them.
Back in August, it was announced that CBS had taken the newest project of Gloria Calderon Kellet, co-creator and executive producer of One Day At A Time, but while nothing else was said in the past few months, this news, alongside the fact that Pam Fryman, who directed several episodes -including the pilot- of One Day At A Time reboot, has joined this project as director/executive producer as well, makes this series a little more in the lane of a reality.
Written by Kellett, History Of Them is a multi-cultural (Latinx/white) romantic comedy series about two friends, Luna (Villafañe) and Adam, falling in love. Their future daughter, with the help of the couple’s social media (Instagram/Twitter/Facebook), will be the one telling us their story in the present-day.
According to Deadline, who was the first to break this news, Luna, Villafañe’s character, is a smart and spunky woman, who runs a successful Latinx food truck with her parents. And her journey will be “full of bumps and bruises” as she navigates through her twenties, struggling with what she wants in life as she doesn’t feel like a “fully-fledged grown up” yet.
