Latinx Legal Drama ‘The Three Joaquins’ in Development at ABC

Potential Series Being Eyed for 2021

ABC has put into development a Laninx legal drama called “The Three Joaquins,” which hails from scribes Manuel Figueroa and Jordan Heime. Partially based on Figueroa’s childhood experience, it tells the story of a wealthy and powerful Latinx family who have their Pasadena world turned upside down when the living proof of their father’s secret life arrives on their doorstep in the form of a 16-year-old kid who shares nothing with his family but their name.

Other than drama “Stumptown,” which was ultimately canceled due to COVID-19 after being renewed earlier in the year, Figueroa and Heime also worked together on Starz’s “Step Up: High Water.” Ruben Fleischer and David Bernad of “The District” are also on board to executive produce “The Three Joaquins.”
