Living in this house will help prepare her for the White House. Start streaming the Original Series, Diary Of A Future President, Jan. 17 on Disney Plus!
Sorry for the delay in adding these. Gina attended Disney’s D23 Expo 2019 for Diary of a Female President last week. She looked lovely at the event. Enjoy the photos. I’m super excited for this series.
Disney+ has given a straight-to-series order to “Diary of a Female President” with Gina Rodriguez attached as an executive producer.
The upcoming streamer has given the half-hour, single-camera comedy series a 10-episode order. Told from the narration of her diary, the series follows a Cuban-American 12 year old girl as she navigates the ups and downs of middle school and her journey to becoming the future president of the United States.
Ilana Peña created the series and serves as writer, with Robin Shorr set to executive produce and serve as showrunner. Rodriguez and Emily Gipson will executive produce via Rodriguez’s I Can and I Will Productions banner. CBS Television Studios, where I Can and I Will is under an overall deal, will produce.
This marks the first series Peña has created. She most recently served as a staff writer on The CW series “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” She is repped by UTA.
Rodriguez is currently prepping for the final season of the acclaimed CW series “Jane the Virgin.” In addition to her numerous film and TV roles, she has built up an impressive producing resume of late, including executive producing a “Jane the Virgin” spinoff pilot at CW. She is repped by CAA and Jackoway Tyerman.
There is no official launch date yet for Disney+, but it is expected to launch in late 2019. Shows already ordered at the service include the “Star Wars” live-action shows “The Mandalorian” and an untitled “Rogue One” prequel, a “High School Musical” series, and a “High Fidelity” series. Disney+ is also developing multiple limited series based on characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Netflix’s Carmen Sandiego movie could be as funny as Game Night, since the streaming giant hired writer Mark Perez to write the Gina Rodriguez-starring movie.
Deadline reported that Perez will write the new movie, as his follow-up to Game Night, which was directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein. The New Line comedy was a hit with critics and grossed $117 million worldwide. Goldstein also wrote Accepted (2002) and The Country Bears (2002).
The movie is just one part of Netflix’s “all-in” approach to the Carmen Sandiego brand, which it acquired the live-action film rights to in March. However, Netflix announced plans for an animated series almost a year earlier, in April 2017.
Rodriguez signed on to star in the film, and will also voice the title character in an animated series to be released in 2019. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, which owns the property, will also publish a new line of books.
Rodriguez is producing the Carmen Sandiego movie under her I Can And I Will banner, with Kevin Misher and Caroline Fraser. The executive producer is Andy Berman of Misher Films. Berman also worked with Rodriquez on Miss Bala, an English-language adaptation of a 2011 Mexican film that comes out on Jan. 25, 2019.
The animated series will also star Finn Wolfard, who plays Mike Wheeler on Stranger Things. He was cast as Carmen’s accomplice, Player, in April.
