Netflix orders reggaeton comedy ‘Neon’

Netflix has ordered Neon, a new scripted comedy series created by author Shea Serrano.

Max Searle will serve as showrunner on the eight-part series, which focuses on three friends who move from a small town in Florida to Miami with the hopes of making it big in the world of reggaeton music. The show chronicles not only their larger than life dreams but the harsh comic realities of attempting to make it in the music industry.

Tyler Dean Flores stars as Santi, a budding reggaeton artist who, with the help of his friends, Ness (Emma Ferrerira) and Felix (Jordan Mendoza) and A&R rep, Mia (Courtney Taylor) hopes to become the biggest reggaeton star in the world. Or at least make rent money.

The series is executive produced by Serrano and Searle. The SB Projects team of Scooter Braun, Scott Manson and James Shin will also executive produce, while Kyle Vinuya is set to co-executive produce. Mendoza also serves as consulting producer.
