ABC Buys Sitcom From Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith
Will Smith is returning to the small screen as a producer for an “Untitled Romeo Project” featuring singer Romeo Santos.
ABC has purchased the right to the show with just a working title and a premise that follows the main character, a man of Dominican-American descent living in Washington Heights, Manhattan. Romeo struggles to relate to his father while creating his own identity, a “new vision of the American Dream.”
The Smith couple are teaming up with James Lassiter to bring the semi-autobiographical sitcom to life.
