Jaime Camil, the 2018 & 2019 Teen Choice Award winner for “Choice TV Actor in a Comedy,” Golden Globe Award and Critics’ Choice Award nominee and named by VANITY FAIR as one of the “Best TV Characters,” is showing no signs of slowing down, launching his official YouTube Channel today as he lines up his next big projects leading up to the new year.
“I decided to create my YouTube channel (youtube.com/JAIMECAMIL) to give my fans more direct access to my life and experiences. I think that my fans not only want to see me on red carpets and during interviews, but that they would like to know more about what happens once we go into the event. Now, they will get to see my travels to a Canelo fight, come with me to an LAFC game or simply join me in a coffee shop! Thanks to my YouTube channel, my subscribers will have direct access to my personal experiences, my backstages stories and even have access to my private life and my family. I really hope you enjoy it and I hope you can join me in the amazing fun!”
Camil will be executive producing (through his ECABA banner) and playing the leading man in the Lionsgate/Pantelion film, MY BOYFRIEND’S MEDS, in theaters worldwide on February 21, 2020, Camil stars opposite Sandra Echeverria (SAVAGES) playing Hank, a charming mattress store owner who meets and falls for Echeverria’s Jess. When the two go on a surprise trip to an island resort, Hank forgets to bring the prescription medicine he takes for a string of disorders, meaning he is no longer able to control his various symptoms and things really start to go awry for the couple.
Camil has also teamed up with “Jane the Virgin” creator Jennie Snyder Urman to co-executive produce the CBS comedy series “Broke,” with Alex Herschlag (executive producer “Will & Grace”) tapped as the writer. In “Broke,” which Camil also stars in, an outrageously wealthy trust fund baby (Camil) is cut off by his father, then he and his wife move into her sister’s Reseda condo where they delight in the “charms” of the working class but mourn the loss of being the 1% of the 1%. CBS will premiere the show midseason 2020.
Camil made his Broadway debut in 2005 in Latinologues and most recently took a turn as “Billy Flynn” in Broadway’s CHICAGO (2016), and starred as “Sam Carmichael” in the Hollywood Bowl’s reprisal of MAMMA MIA! opposite Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles and actress/singer Dove Cameron this past summer. He has starred in over 20 award-winning films, including PULLING STRINGS and 200 CARTAS (alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda). Camil has led the highest-rated telenovelas of all time and has recorded four platinum-selling albums and has starred in many musicals in his native Mexico City, including West Side Story, Hook, Aladdinand more. In 2005 he led the Broadway-bound musical The Mambo Kings.
