Ricky Martin inks TV deal

Ricky Martin may be headed to the small screen after he completes his acclaimed run in the smash Broadway revival of Evita, according to Deadline.

The singer-actor has reportedly signed a talent holding deal with
Universal Television to develop and star in a network television series
and TV specials. Universal TV EVP Bela Bajaria is elated by Martin’s
potential. “Ricky is an iconic superstar who is as talented as he is
popular,” she says. “Whether he’s performing before sold-out concert
crowds, or starring on Broadway, where he is currently playing to SRO in
Evita, Ricky connects with his audience in a very palpable way
– and we are thrilled that he will be adding TV star to his incredible
resume.”
