Mario Lopez, Seth Kurland Set Latinx Family Comedy Series at Netflix
Mario Lopez and Seth Kurland are teaming up for a new comedy series at Netflix.

Variety has learned that the streamer has given a 16 episode order to the multi-cam comedy “The Expanding Universe of Ashley Garcia” co-created by Lopez and Kurland. In the series, when Ashley Garcia — the world’s only 15-and-a-half-year-old robotics engineer and rocket scientist — gets the chance to work for Nasa, she moves across the country to live with her Uncle Victor, a pro football player turned high school coach who’s never met a responsibility he can’t shirk.

Newcomer Paulina Chavez will star as Ashley, while Jencarlos Canela will play Victor. Canela previously starred on the ABC series “Telenovela” and will appear in the upcoming ABC series “Grand Hotel,” in addition to starring in numerous Spanish language productions.

Chavez is repped by Cesd Talent Agency and Industry Entertainment. Canela is repped by CAA and DePaz Management.
