“Jane the Novela,” a “Jane the Virgin” spinoff series in the works at the CW, has found its lead.
Former “East Los High” actress Jacqueline Grace Lopez has been cast as Estela, an up and coming art curator who has spent years playing it safe and coloring within the lines. But a shocking secret changes everything and forces her to live a double life.
Jane - Novela - Anthology - Series - Tradition
“Jane the Novela” is described as a telenovela anthology series in the tradition of “Jane the Virgin,” where each season is based on a different fictional novel “written by” Jane Villanueva and narrated by the author herself. The first instalment takes place at a Napa Valley Vineyard, where family secrets–and family members–don’t stay buried for long.
