ABC has given a script commitment with penalty to Bridges, a multi-camera Latina family comedy, from writer Aaron Serna (Mr. Iglesias), Jaime Davila’s Campanario Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV.
Written by Serna, Bridges is a multi-generational, multi-cultural family comedy about family, identity, and forgiveness. It tells the story of a family of strong Texas Latinas who have their world turned upside down when they lose the beloved mother who held their family together, and are left with the white, conservative father they blame for tearing the family apart.
Serna executive produces with Campanario Entertainment’s Davila and Rico Martinez. Sebastian Jones will serve as showrunner. The project is a co-production of 20th Century Fox TV and Campanario Entertainment.
Serna’s previous writing credits include Mr. Iglesias, Cristela, Rhett & Link’s Buddy System and Malibu Country. He’s repped by Echo Lake Entertainment and Gregg Gellman and Miles Metcoff at Morris Yorn.
Campanario Entertainment is producing Selena: The Series, Netflix’s upcoming scripted series that retells the tragic life story of Selena Quintanilla, the Queen of Tejano music and one of the most iconic Mexican-American pop stars. The company also is behind Bravo reality series Mexican Dynasties, which follows three affluent Mexican families in Mexico City, as well as documentary feature Colossus, directed by Jonathan Schienberg, which tells the timely heart-wrenching tale of a family’s struggle with immigration, deportation and family separation.
Davila is repped by Nick Lafferty at CAA and Robert Darwell at Sheppard Mullin. Jones is repped by attorney Gregg Gellman at Morris Yorn.
