Sofia Vergara, the actress, CoverGirl model, techie homemaker and clothing designer is adding another branch to her expansive portfolio — cutting-edge producer. It appears the actress won’t be wasting her summer break from filming Modern Family on a tropical island somewhere. She just announced a brand-new series unlike anything you’ve seen her in. The actress is launching a shortform series on Snapchat — and we’re in a hot pursuit for all the deets.
Variety reports that the Snapchat show, titled Vergaraland, is a tongue-in-cheek take on the actress’ life through the lens of her son, Manolo González Vergara. The six-episode series, launching this summer on Fusion’s Snapchat Discover channel is sure to be overflowing with Sofia’s unfiltered commentary, providing plenty of hilarious mother-son LOLs throughout. Fingers crossed for a cameo or two from hotter-than-hot fiancé Joe Manganiello too. <3
Unlike Snapchat’s regular user-generated content, every episode will be available for 24 hours after its debut. So no worries about dropping that strawberry daquiri poolside when you get a notification that episode 3 of Vergaraland has been released ;)
With various social media outlets starting to go the series route — like GAP’s Spring Is Weird Instagram series, AT&T’s SnapperHero + Snapchat’s own Literally Can’t Even — it seems like the future of cord cutting will be expanding into social media as we say goodbye to Comcast et al to embrace entertainment on these emerging platforms.
What other actors + actresses do you want to see go the social media platform series route? Let us know in the comments.
