Tracking Board is reporting that Gina has signed on to voice the “Carmen Sandiego” in a new animated series that is in the works at Netflix.
As two studios battle for her next feature slot, Gina Rodriguez has signed on to voice CARMEN SANDIEGO in a new animated series that’s in the works at Netflix, the Tracking Board has exclusively learned. The deal comes as the Golden Globe-winning actress negotiates for the lead role in Sony’s remake of MISS BALA and 20th Century Fox’s comedy FIRE ME — though she may have to choose between them.
Miss Bala follows a beauty pageant contestant who witnesses a gang shooting and is subsequently kidnapped and forced to work for the gang in the drug trade. Gerardo Naranjo directed the original film, which received a foreign language Oscar nomination.
Fire Me marks the feature directorial debut of Ryan Case, the Emmy-winning editor and director of Modern Family. Ben Still’s Red Hour Films is producing the movie, which is inspired by the Libby Malin novel, and is said to be similar in tone to the 1980 comedy 9 to 5.
Sources say that the two projects are scheduled to shoot around the same time, so it would be difficult for Rodriguez to do both, though Sony sees Miss Bala as a potential franchise starter, which could give it an edge.
In any event, the star of the hit CW series Jane the Virgin is making time in her busy schedule to voice Carmen Sandiego, which is based on the iconic video game series Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? and the subsequent TV show of the same name, which starred Lynne Thigpen as “The Chief.”
Episode stills from episode 17 of the current season of “Jane the Virgin” entitled Chapter Sixty-One have been added to our gallery. The episode will air May 1.
During the Deadline’s Contenders Emmys Panel Jennie Snyder Urman and Gina discussed what’s next for Jane this season.
Jane the Virgin EP/showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman and star Gina Rodriguez were on hand at the CBS TV Studios panel at Deadline’s The Contenders Emmys on Sunday, along with Crazy Ex-Girlfriend co-creator/executive producer/showrunner Aline Brosh McKenna and The Late Late Show with James Corden executive producer Rob Crabbe.
The first panel was for Jane the Virgin, moderated by Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva. Rodriguez plays Jane Villanueva, a devout Latina virgin who is artificially inseminated by mistake and left to grapple with the challenges of motherhood at a young age. In Season 3 of the series, Jane endeavors to complete her graduate thesis, while dealing with the unexpected death of her husband, Michael (Brett Dier). The big question of the day was: “Why did Michael have to die?”
“It was always part of the journey that I envisioned at the beginning about a woman who really believed in fantasy and the magic of romance and had big dreams in her life. And things don’t work out like that all the time,” Urman told the audience. “It’s always been about the balance, the shift from leaving her relationship between fantasy and reality. Michael’s death — the show started with such a big earthquake for Jane when she found out she was unexpectedly pregnant, and Michael’s death was always going to be the midpoint of the show where everything changed again in her life and everything changed for everyone around her.”
Adding that in a telenovela you want to build to an ending and have that ending in sight, she continued. “Our show is about how do you go on. … Loss is always something that we all face … and I wanted to explore that and figure out how we could find the comedy and the joy after an event like that.”
Gina attended The Contenders Emmys Presented By Deadline to talk about “Jane the Virgin” on Sunday. She also did a portrait session with Jennie Snyder Urman.
