“RPM Miami” is mun2’s first-ever dramatic series with novela roots. Telemundo’s bilingual cable network and Telemundo Studios presented more on their new 13-episode series during NBC Universal’s Summer Press Day last week in Pasadena. Shot on location in Miami, and packed with adrenaline-pumping action, the show, a scripted original production, follows a group of young Latino friends as they struggle to make something of themselves by day and conquer the underground racing scene by night.
Featuring an all-Latino cast, the weekly series revolves around Alejandro (Salvadoran Adrian Bellani), a top U.S. Army Ranger who reunites with his family in Miami after his discharge, only to find out that his father is missing and his family has fallen into financial hardship. Determined to uncover the truth about his father’s disappearance, Alejandro enters the dangerous world of Miami’s underground street racing, a lifestyle full of action and drama. At the center of the storm is Luisa (Mexican actress Fernanda Romero), a woman trying to find herself and move away from a tormented past. Alejandro will meet and befriend the owner of the RPM car shop, Ramon, played by award-winning Latin-recording artist Frankie J.
The series will also feature cameo appearances by some of Latin music’s top names, including De la Ghetto, Lenny Santos of Aventura, Flex, and Alexis y Fido. It makes its debut on Sunday, 5/1, 10pm ET/PT, on mun2.
