Gina Rodriguez has not been shy about standing up for women rights. As a longtime advocate for pay equality and her activism on social media, the star has become our favorite feminist.
So it's not surprising Rodriguez is now producing a female-driven drama all about sisterhood, titled Femme. That's right! According to Variety, the show, which in development at The CW, follows four millennial women who become unlikely friends through social media and form a support system for each other through all the issues women deal with in this day and age. Along with the Puerto Rican beauty, the show will be created by, written, and executive produced by Audrey Wauchope and Rachel Specter, who served as writers and producers on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. The dynamic duo also worked on some of our faves like Cougar Town and One Tree Hill.
Of course, this isn't the only show the Jane the Virgin star is producing with CW. Back in September, it was announced that Rodriguez was working on another show centered around the Latino community and immigration. The show titled Illegal, is based on the life of Rafael Agustin, a screenwriter of Jane The Virgin, who immigrated from Ecuador to the United States as a child.
It will follow the journey of 16-year-old Rafael as he discovers he is undocumented.
