It’s looking like a gender-swapped ‘Zorro’ spearheaded by Robert and Rebecca Rodriguez is on the horizon.
‘Modern Family’ alumnus, Sofia Vergara, is working to bring together a gender-swapped ‘Zorro’ alongside the brother-sister duo, Robert and Rebecca Rodriguez, and her LatinWe. The series puts a focus on Sola Dominguez, who acts as a contemporary version of Zorro.
Not much is known outside of a handful of the project’s leaders. Aside from Vergara and the Rodriguez siblings, Ben Silverman and Howard T. Owens will also act as executive producers next to the trio. Rodney Ferrell, Greg Lipstone, Jay Weisleder, Luis Balaguer, Geoff Clark, Eric Bromberg, and John Gertz are all also tied to the project for their respective studios.
The male Rodriguez has a fair bit of traction with his name fresh in our minds, having finished up directing an episode of the Disney Plus original ‘The Mandolorian.’
CBS Studios is slated to co-produce with Universal TV.
