Nick Jonas: I have a romantic view of New York City – Inside NoVA

Nick Jonas has a “romantic” view of New York City.

The 28-year-old star is an executive producer of the Netflix comedy series ‘Dash & Lily’ – which tells the story of a burgeoning romance in the Big Apple – and Nick has admitted he has a deep-rooted affection for the city.

He shared: “I spent a lot of time there in New York and Broadway doing shows. And then as I got older, I lived in between New York and Los Angeles for a number of years. So I have a romantic kind of view of it.

“Obviously, in this time when New York looks very different today than it did last year when we shot this show, there’s a really nostalgic, wonderful, kind of romanticizing of the city that you see in the show.”

Nick was also charmed by the concept of the series, which sees two characters of contrasting personalities trade their dreams and desires.

The pop star – who is married to actress Priyanka Chopra – told ‘Entertainment Tonight’: “The themes and the characters, it really is about taking risks and putting yourself out there.

“These characters are coming of age in a way, which is also really fun to see, the insecurities that we all feel naturally as we kind of come into our own. But they play out into really adult themes in a really, I think, strong way. I’m so excited for people to see it.”

Nick and his brothers actually make a cameo appearance in the series, and he’s excited to be involved with the project.

He said: “Shawn Levy, who’s the other executive producer of the show, we go a long way back with him. To ‘The Night At the Museum’ days. We were the cherubs in that movie.

“So we’ve known him for a while, and we’ve always tried to think of something we could work on together.”
