Freeform has put the Puerto Rico-set Trap Queen in development with Danny Strong executive producing, I’ve learned. The music rich project from the American territory was created by Scandal and Roswell, New Mexico writer Miguel Nolla.
An alum of the Disney•ABC Writing Program, the San Juan-born Nolla will serve as showrunner on Trap Queen.
The drama focuses on a gay young man who returns to Puerto Rico after a life changing event. With the burgeoning local music scene as both the backdrop and the soundtrack, that move forces him to face family and romantic issues he thought he had left behind and never expected.
Along with Nolla and Strong, Danny Strong Productions’ Mandy Safavi will also EP the 20th Television venture with Sb Projects’ Scooter Braun, James Shin and Scott Manson.
