SPANISH-LANGUAGE COMEDY SERIES LOS ESPOOKYS, FROM FRED ARMISEN AND LORNE MICHAELS, DEBUTS IN JUNE ON HBO
From the minds of fresh, exciting talents Julio Torres and Ana Fabrega, alongside Fred Armisen and Lorne Michaels of “Saturday Night Live,” comes the primarily Spanish-language comedy series LOS ESPOOKYS, which begins its six-episode season this June on HBO. The half-hour series follows a group of friends who turn their love for horror into a peculiar business, providing horror to those who need it, in a dreamy Latin American country where the strange and eerie are just part of daily life.
Starring Bernardo Velasco, Cassandra Ciangherotti, Ana Fabrega, Julio Torres and Fred Armisen, LOS ESPOOKYS was created by Fred Armisen & Ana Fabrega & Julio Torres, and executive produced by Fred Armisen, Lorne Michaels and Andrew Singer.
Renaldo (Bernardo Velasco), a horror and gore enthusiast, assembles his friends to form Los Espookys. Noble, kind, naïve, and always running out of cellphone minutes, he’s joined by Ursula (Cassandra Ciangherotti), a tough, calm and collected dental assistant who handles the logistics and execution of Los Espookys’ work, like making sure they get paid for their spooks. Also in the group is Ursula’s sister, Tati (Ana Fabrega), who constantly juggles several odd jobs, such as breaking in other people’s shoes and counting people’s steps. She acts as Los Espookys’ test dummy.
Rounding out Los Espookys is Renaldo’s best friend, Andres (Julio Torres), a dark and mysterious heir to a chocolate empire who longs to unlock the secrets to his past and avoid his beautiful boyfriend. Meanwhile, Renaldo’s reliable uncle, Tico (Fred Armisen), is living his dream of parking cars as a prodigious valet driver in LA.
