Jencarlos Canela dishes on what it's like to play Jesus, be married to Eva Longoria, and have a hit song all at the same time!
On the show, Jencarlos plays the male lead not too much unlike his real self—a Latin heartthrob and telenovela superstar. He co-stars opposite actress, creator, and executive producer Eva Longoria. Eva stars in this big, fun and flashy half-hour comedy as ‘Ana Sofia,’ the star of a popular Spanish-language soap opera. ‘Ana’ must manage a new boss, jealous cast mates and high-maintenance best friends — and that’s all before her ex-husband (Jencarlos) is hired as her new on-screen love interest.
On the music front, he has collaborated with the likes of Grammy Award-winning songwriter Emilio Estefan, Latin Grammy Award-winning producer Rudy Perez and performing artist Pitbull, among several others. In 2013, Canela was signed as an exclusive artist by Universal Music Records and he released his third and most recent album, “JEN,” in 2014. He is currently working in the studio on his English Album debut with Republic Records and will release his first single in early 2016 and the album in summer 2016.
