*Romeo is reteaming with the producer of his Nickelodeon series “Romeo!” for a new project titled “RESQ3,” a high-school show that focuses on teen social issues.
Almost a decade after Romeo Miller first worked under Tom Lynch, the director will again collaborate with the actor/rapper, who will be featured on the show along with his new rap/rock band RESQ3, including drummer Christian Brock and guitarist/vocalist Myles Eberhardt.
“It’s the first teen TV show with a Hip Hop, Rock and Pop sound,” Miller tells Deadline Hollywood.
Tom Lynch Co. is financing the production of a pilot in the fall, according to Deadline. The show has already been sold in several international markets, while talks with U.S. networks are underway.
“It’s great to be back in business with Romeo,” Lynch said. “From 2003 to 2006 we had a #1 series on Nickelodeon, and with Romeo’s experience, poised acting skills, comedic timing, built-in fan base, and musical success, we are expecting to repeat history with another hit TV show.”
Romeo is currently filming Tyler Perry’s “Madea’s Witness Protection” and will go on tour with RESQ3 in April.
