VH1 TO FOLLOW GERARDO MEJIA, A.K.A. "RICO SUAVE" AND FAMILY FOR NEW COMEDIC DOCU-SERIES "SUAVE SAYS" (WORKING TITLE)

90's Pop Star Sings A New Tune as Frenzied Family Man in 10-Episode Series Slated for Fall Premiere

SANTA MONICA, CA - March 3, 2014 - Gerardo - and his famously chiseled torso - rose to the top of the music charts in the early 1990's thanks to his hit single "Rico Suave." When fans eventually moved on, so did Gerardo, who transitioned into a career as a powerful music executive, married a beauty queen and started a family. Now the former heartthrob is teaming up with VH1 as he passes the music torch to his children and manages a loco home life with "hot mom" wife Kathy, rapping son Jaden, niece Lexi and daughters Bianca, a fashionista, and Nadia, an aspiring singer and "Miss Teen Beverly Hills" title-holder. Rounding out the hectic Mejia household are twenty year-old niece "Lexi" and her toddler son. "Suave Says" (working title) has been greenlit for 10 half hour episodes and will premiere later this year. The series will be produced by Blank Paige Productions.

After living out his own rock-n-roll dreams, "Rico Suave" went to work behind the scenes, becoming one of Interscope Records' most valuable A&R executives and credited with bringing fellow Latin singer Enrique Iglesias and others into the mainstream. But reconciling a rock star past with modern parenting isn't easy, as Gerardo and Kathy have discovered with kids who want to follow in their father's famous footsteps. Add to that Kathy's inclination to be a best friend to her daughters, and home life for the Mejias is never easy, even when it's suave.

"Gerardo and his crazy, musical family truly break the reality TV mold," said Susan Levison, Executive Vice President, Original Programming & Production, VH1. "We knew we had our next buzz-worthy series as soon as he walked through our door. Plus, he still has those abs."

"I can't wait for VH1's audience to meet my wild family," said Gerardo Mejia. "We're like Ricky and Lucy but with a handful of crazy kids trying to run my casa."

VH1's "Suave Says" is executive produced by Edward Paige and Liane Su for Blank Paige Productions. VH1 executive producers are Susan Levison, Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly and Fernando Mills.
