The series, which will begin filming in July, tells the story of the only 15-year-old girl in the world who is a robotics engineer and rocket scientist and was given the opportunity to work at NASA. In order to make this happen, she has to move across the country to live with her uncle, Victor (portrayed by Canela). The series is co-created by Mario Lopez.
On Instagram, the Cuban-American singer-songwriter and actor opened up about the opportunity. “I want to dedicate this moment to everyone that has a dream and the desire to do something with this life. No matter where you’re from, your color, your situation…YOU can make it happen!!!” he expressed, thanking his family, the TV networks that first opened the doors for him, Eva Longoria for being a mentor, and the series’ co-creator Mario Lopez for believing in him. “We are going to laugh our asses off and create some beautiful memories on this ride everyone,” he added.
Canela kicked off 2019 with a revamped sound and new artistic name, Jen. He released the track “Irremplazable” in March.
