Daddy Yankee is showing his support for the next generation of reggaeton talent in the first trailer for Netflix’s Neon ahead of its October 19 premiere.
From creators Shea Serrano and Max Searle, Neon follows three friends in Miami as they hustle their way to making it big in the world of reggaeton. The eight-episode comedy captures not only the three besties’ larger-than-life dreams but also the harsh realities and funny mishaps of surviving the music industry.
Tyler Dean Flores plays Santi, a rising reggaeton artist who, with the help of his friends Ness (Emma Ferreira), Felix (Jordan Mendoza), and A&R rep Mia (Courtney Taylor), hopes to become the biggest star in reggaeton—or at least pay his rent.
Yankee, a pioneer of the musical genre, executive produces the series and makes an appearance. Genesis Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Jhayco, Santiago Cabrera and Jowell are also among the Season 1 guest stars.
Neon co-creator Max Searle serves as showrunner. In addition to Yankee, the series is executive produced by Shea Serrano and Searle, alongside SB Projects and Anne Clements.
Executive music producers include Tainy, Lex Borrero, Ivan Rodriguez, from Ntertain and Neon16, and collectively known as Tainy & One Six. One Six of Neon16 and Ntertain, and Joe Rodriguez and Javier Nuno of Indice are music producers.
