EXCLUSIVE: Deadline has learned that ITV America is developing the music reality series Star Serenade with Brazilian singer model and actress Greice Santo as creator and EP.
The series format is described as having recording artists/pop-stars surprising individuals with a performance of a song that’s particularly meaningful to the person requesting, as well as the artist themselves.
Santo had an eureka moment last year that would reshape the vision for her own life and lead to the development of Star Serenade. Last summer, Santo organized a surprise serenade for her friend, Giuliana Feltscher, wife of LA Galaxy soccer star Rolf Feltscher, of legendary Italian award-winning singer and producer Tony Renis performing the ballad “Quando Quando Quando”. The song meant the world to Giuliana Feltscher as her father sang it to her as a child. In May 2020, Feltscher lost her father to Covid after he endured a three-month battle with the virus in a coma in an Italian hospital. The serenade, which was recorded and went viral around the world in a video posted on DailyMail, showed Giuliana Feltscher breaking down in tears upon hearing Renis’ performance. With the video receiving worldwide media attention, Santo decided to create a show that would do these kind acts to deserving people on a regular basis around the globe.

Her new single Trankila drops in August. Portions of all proceeds from that single will go to MusiCares.
She is repped by UTA.
