You know you want a Miami-set drama from Pitbull. 

Fox does, at least. The network has given a script commitment plus penalty to 305, executive produced, naturally, by Mr. 305 himself, Armando Christian Perez. 

The one-hour drama follows Willy, who’s forced to leave his high school to go live with his celebrity chef uncle and attend Miami’s wealthiest private school. According to Fox, “He attempts to acclimate himself to his new surroundings while dealing with relationships, family drama, work, and all the problems that more money brings.” 

Sascha Penn (Power) will write the script, and Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies) will direct. They’ll also executive produce with Perez, with David Ortiz co-executive produce through Honey I’m Home.

Fall TV preview

Pitbull is no stranger to Fox. The “I Know You Want Me” singer hosted the network’s New Year’s Eve concert special this year, and he’s also set to guest star on Empire‘s sophomore season, appearing as himself and performing “No Doubt About It” with Jamal.
