FOX’s Fantasy Island reboot has locked in one other star!
Roselyn Sanchez (Devious Maids, Grand Resort) has checked in, the place she stars as Elena Roarke, a descendant of the long-lasting Mr. Roarke.
“Elena put aside her personal ambitions, and even the love of her life, to uphold her household’s legacy,” reads the character description.
“Subtle, insightful and all the time charming, Elena’s calm exterior masks the challenges of the duties she has assumed as steward of this mysterious island. “
The all-new model of the traditional present from Sony Footage Tv, Gemstone Studios, and FOX Leisure will premiere Tuesday, Aug. 10 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Manufacturing is already underway on location in Puerto Rico for the aforementioned summer season premiere.
Sanchez joins the already introduced Kiara Barnes (The Daring and the Stunning) as Ruby Okoro,” a younger girl with an previous soul who arrives on Fantasy Island with a terminal sickness and is given a brand new lease on life there.”
John Gabriel Rodriquez (Miranda’s Rights, Rosewood) can be hooked up as pilot Javiar, who is also the top of island transportation and a jack of all trades.
A contemporary drama collection, Fantasy Island takes place at a luxurious resort, the place actually any fantasy requested by company is fulfilled, though they hardly ever end up as anticipated.
Delving into the “what if” questions — each massive and small — that hold us awake at evening, every episode will inform emotional, provocative tales about individuals who arrive with goals and needs and depart enlightened and remodeled via the magical realism of Fantasy Island.
Government-produced by Liz Craft and Sarah Fain (The 100, The Protect, Misinform Me), Fantasy Island can be co-produced by Sony Footage Tv, Gemstone Studios, and FOX Leisure.
Sanchez is well-known for her roles on primetime soaps Devious Maids and Grand Resort.
The collection joins an unscripted-heavy summer season slate at FOX.
