The drama series comes from Star Trek: Discovery and Quantico co-exec producer Jordon Nardino and Damon Wayans Jr.
It tells the story of Marco Mejia, a young gender non-conforming queer man whose life seems to be stuck in place until he lands a job working for legendary makeup mogul Madolyn Addison. It’s Marco’s first chance to figure out what he wants out of life, who he actually is, and what it really means for him to be queer.
Benny, who was the first openly gay character in Netflix’s Fuller House and has also starred in Love, Victor and American Horror Stories, stars as Mejia, while casting is underway for Addison.
Brooke Shields previously starred in The CW pilot, which was directed by Eva Longoria.
Produced by CBS Studios, Nardino writes and exec produces the ten-part drama series, which is also exec produced by Wayans Jr. and Kameron Tarlow of Two Shakes Entertainment.
The project was first ordered to pilot by The CW in February 2019 but was not picked up that May and was passed on in June 2019.
