Prince Royce Joins Cast of Hulu’s ‘East Los High’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Prince Royce has joined the cast of Hulu’s “East Los High” for the series’ fourth season, Variety has learned exclusively.

The multi-platinum recording artist will be seen in a recurring role, playing Vincent, the successful coach of the Jefferson Park Dance crew, which is the Bomb Squad’s main competitor. The sexy newcomer arrives just in time to test the drive and talent of the East Los High dancers, while also tempting the desires of their coach, Ceci (Danielle Vega).

“East Los High” revolves around teens growing up in a working-class neighborhood in East Los Angeles. Gabriel Chavarria, Alicia Sixtos, Vannessa Vasquez and Vega star.

The recurring gig marks an evolving foray into acting for Prince Royce. The musical phenom who has a devoted fan base, with upwards of 5 million Twitter followers, has been nominated for a slew of Latin Grammy Awards and Billboard Music Awards. To date, his only acting credit is for a short film, but up next, the multihyphenate will star in Fox’s hotly anticipated live musical event “The Passion,” alongside Trisha Yearwood and Tyler Perry.

“East Los High,” coming from racially diverse and gender-inclusive writers and producers, was the first show to focus on an English-language Latino audience and also the first to explore the lives of Latino teens coming of age in the U.S.

Carlos Portugal and Kathleen Bedoya created the series, and serve as exec producers with Katie Elmore Mota and Mauricio Mota from Wise Entertainment.

The fourth season of “East Los High” is currently in production and is slated to debut on Hulu this summer.
