Grammy-winning singer Marc Anthony is teaming up with ViacomCBS International Studios (VIS) to produce a new comedy TV series that explores the world of social media and the desire of one millennial to become a social media influencer.
The show, which is titled Liked, follows the aspiring social media star doing everything she can to find fame based on the amount of “likes” she gets on certain online platforms. It’s not yet known if Liked will incorporate a real social networking service like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or TikTok, or if it will come up with a fictional version of a company.
“We are very excited, and it is an honor to have the opportunity to work with ViacomCBS International Studios on these projects that mean so much to us and to share with the world stories that bring to light our culture,” Anthony said in a statement.
Anthony, who founded Magnus Studios, will serve as an executive producer and executive music producer for the series. This is the second project Mangus Studios and VIS are developing together. The two companies just released the first trailer for their upcoming animated series Gloria Wants to Know It All about a young alpaca living in the big city who journeys to her grandfather’s small town in Latin America.
“Our continued partnership with Magnus Studios and a talented artist like Marc is a testament to our studio’s commitment to telling compelling, unique stories that resonate with audiences around the world,” said VIS president JC Acosta in a statement.
On June 11, Anthony can be seen in a small, but important role as an apathetic father in the musical In the Heights.
