Will and Jada sell series to ABC

There were rumors of a split, but Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith are still doing business together. According to the Hollywood Reporter, ABC has bought a multi-camera comedy from the Hollywood power couple.

The series, currently referred to as "Untitled Romeo Project," will star Latin singer Anthony "Romeo" Santos.

Santos will play a conflicted Dominican-American man from the New York City neighborhood Washington Heights. The show will follow Romeo’s struggle to please his traditional immigrant father while entertaining his own modern American dreams.

Santos, 30, is a Bronx-born entertainer famous in the Latin music world. Romeo had a hand in popularizing the Bachata genre with his group Aventura.

In 2009, Romeo won “Favorite Latin Music Artist” at the AMAs and was invited to play at the White House.

      I thought it was a good show, too, until they put Marc Anthony (shudder) on it.

    @Evel Knievel – Do you EVER have anything nice to say? I see your comments posted all the time and they are never positive. Do you have nothing better to do than read cnn.com and post worthless garbage? Get a life.

      Man come on...you've got to get out more. Bitterness is not a good look, it just ages you. No need for the constant viral hate you eminate. Life is what you make it!

      Calling someone's children "a waste of space," is not necessary. It's bad enough when adults make ugly comments about adults, but when you start talking about someone's children you've sunk to a new low. Guest, I liked your comment sounds like something I say from time to time.

    This is absolutely the best show I have ever seen. It is kind of a cross between Stargate and Terra Nova. I think you are going to LOVE it !
