Zoe Saldana has probably been super busy looking after her twin boys, Bowie Ezio and Cy Aridio, with husband Marco Perego, but the actress still finds time to take on fun new projects. Not only is she starring in a Nina Simone biopic and reprising her roles as Uhura in Star Trek Beyond and Neytiri in several Avatar sequels, she’s using her mommy skills to help other parents in their new role.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Saldana’s production company, Cinestar, has signed a partnership with Awestruck, a network tailored to the needs of millennial moms, to produce a parenting web series. The 37-year-old actress will serve as executive producer for two new digital series and develop a YouTube channel for the network with her sisters Mariel and Cisely, who are also co-founders of Cinestar.
“With modern moms on-the-go and online, the opportunity to create content specifically for them is exciting," Saldana said in a statement. "The team behind Awestruck has already proven their expertise in reaching young audiences with AwesomenessTV, and we are thrilled to partner with them to collaborate on this new, promising venture."
The Awestruck network, which was created by teen YouTube channel AwesomenessTV, is set to debut this fall with a list of scripted and unscripted series made for women.
