Netflix Sets Reggaeton Comedy Series 'Neon'; Tyler Dean Flores, Courtney Taylor, Emma Ferreira And Jordan Mendoza To Star

Netflix has announced the upcoming reggaeton comedy series Neon, which is created by Shea Serrano.

Max Searle serves as showrunner. The series is executive produced by Serrano and Searle alongside Scooter Braun, Scott Manson and James Shin. Kyle Vinuya is set to co-executive produce. Jordan Mendoza will serve as consulting producer.

The logline: Neon 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. The show chronicles not only their larger than life dreams but the harsh comic realities of attempting to make it in the music industry.

Neon stars Tyler Dean Flores, Emma Ferreira, Jordan Mendoza and Courtney Taylor.

Flores plays Santi, “a budding reggaeton artist who, with the help of his friends, Ness (Ferrerira) and Felix (Mendoza) and A&R rep, Mia (Taylor) hopes to become the biggest reggaeton star in the world or at least make rent.”

The season will have eight episodes.
