LOS ANGELES: Pop star-actor Ricky Martin is set to lead "Mrs American Pie", a period comedy series from streaming platform Apple TV+.

Martin joins previously announced cast members Kristen Wiig and Alison Janney in the series executive produced by Laura Dern. According to Deadline, the "Livin' La Vida Loca" hitmaker will play the male lead, Robert in "Mrs American Pie".

Based on the novel by Juliet McDaniel, "Mrs America Pie" follows Maxine Simmons (Wiig), a woman attempting to secure her seat at America's most exclusive table: Palm Beach high society.

Abe Sylvia, known for the upcoming "George & Tammy" series starring Jessica Chastain, will write, executive produce and show run the series.

The series was developed by Dern and her producing partner Jayme Lemons under their banner Jaywalker Pictures.

Martin, who is set to perform at the American Foundation for Aids Research gala in Cannes later this week, was last seen playing Antonio D'Amico in Ryan Murphy's critically-acclaimed FX drama "The Assassination of Gianni Versace" as part of the 'American Crime' story anthology.
