Gina Rodriguez, Tom Ellis, and Damon Wayans Jr., are teaming up for a brand new romantic comedy coming down the pipeline at Netflix.
According to Deadline, actors Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin), Tom Ellis (Lucifer), and Damon Wayans Jr., (Happy Endings) have all joined the cast of Players.
The upcoming Netflix Original romantic comedy is set in Chicago and follows a sportswriter named Mack who, along with her best friend Adam, and the rest of their friends, have come up with a fool-proof method to scoring no strings attached hook-ups (or “plays”). Things take a turn, however, when Mack suddenly finds herself falling for one of her intended hookup targets.
For the rom-com, Rodriguez will play Mack, while Wayans Jr., will play her bestie, Adam. Ellis, meanwhile, will take on the role of the guy Mack finds herself falling for.
Behind the scenes, Netflix is teaming with Marc Platt Productions and Campfire to produce the forthcoming feature.
Set to direct is Trish Sie, who has previously helmed such titles as The Sleepover and Pitch Perfect 3. Sie will be directing off of a script written by Ozark vet Whit Anderson.
Producers on the project include Marc Platt, Ross Dinerstein, Ross Girard, Dan Clarke, Molly Breeskin, and Rodriguez herself.
Currently, there’s no word on when we can expect to see Players premiere on Netflix.
