The project is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Bobby Crosby which centers on a beloved pop star (Lopez).

She is about to get married to her rock star fiancee (Maluma) during a massive event at Madison Square Garden, and just moments before exchanging vows, learns he’s been cheating on her with her assistant.

After an on-stage meltdown, she picks a random man out of the crowd – a divorced math teacher (Wilson) to marry instead.
