Christina Vidal is set as a lead in The Curse Of The Fuentes Women, NBC‘s drama pilot from Warner Bros TV. Also cast in the project, written/executive produced by Silvio Horta and directed by Jason Ensler, is Daphne Rubin-Vega (Smash).
When a magical and mysterious young man (Adan Canto) inexplicably emerges from the ocean, he breathes new passion into the lives of the Fuentes women – the beautiful but lonely Lola (Vidal), her ailing mother Esperanza (Rachel Ticotin) and her troubled daughter Soledad (Katie Sarife). Lola has given up on love and dedicated herself to caring for her daughter Soledad, her mother Esperanza and their floundering family restaurant – until a mysterious stranger enters her life, opening up a world of possibilities. Rubin-Vega, who originated the role of Mimi Marquez in the Broadway musical Rent, plays Remelda, a Santeria priestess who lives with and acts as an adviser to Orquidia, Esperanza’s estranged sister. Vidal is repped by BRS/Gage, McKeon Myones Entertainment and SMGSB. Rubin-Vega is with Paradigm and Untitled Entertainment.
