‘Gossip Girl’ Heads to Acapulco (PHOTOS & VIDEO)
Meet the Mexican versions of Serena van der Woodsen and company.
Nearly one month after The CW series’ great big finale, a Mexican version of the show has been confirmed.
Gossip Girl: Acapulco will hit the airwaves starting in July, producer Pedro Torres and Warner Bros. International Television Production announced Wednesday, according to El Universal.
Torres, whose previous projects include Spanish-speaking versions of Big Brother and the third season of the popular Mexican drama, Mujeres Asesinas, said the new show will mirror the Manhattannites and their lavish lifestyles, including fashion, cars and mansions.
Rafael Nadal is slated to guest star on the show’s first season. The tennis star's acting resume includes Shakira's music video for her 2010 hit "Gypsy."
Gossip Girl: Acapulco has recruited some of the hottest young talent in the Latin community.
Playing the Acapulco equivalent of Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) is Vadhir Derbez, the 21-year-old singer who’s been in the business since he was a toddler.
Sofia Sisniega, who has previously worked with Mel Gibson in 2010's Get the Gringo and Zoe Kravitz in last year's project, The Boy Who Smells Like Fish, stars as Sofia Lopez-Haro, the Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) of the new series.
