Antonio Banderas to star in Starz series 'Cuban Quartet'

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- Starz is developing "Cuban Quartet," a series starring Antonio Banderas.

Starz CEO Chris Albrecht made the announcement Friday at a panel for television critics in Beverly Hills, California. The series is based on a popular book series by Leonardo Padura.

Banderas will play a Cuban detective who always dreamed of being a writer. He will also executive produce the series, which will get international distribution by EntertainmentOne.

Cuba is a hot commodity for Hollywood right now.

Discovery Channel recently premiered its series "Cuban Chrome," Conan O'Brien shot recent episodes of his late-night talk show, "Conan," in Cuba, and the American Heroes Channel will air a one-hour documentary on Fidel Castro.
