Arturo Castro‘s acclaimed television project is headed online…
The 34-year-old Guatemalan actor’s Alternatino will make its way to Quibi.
The short-form mobile streaming platform has ordered the critically-acclaimed sketch series from the Broad Cityalum and Comedy Central Productions.
The first season of Alternatino debuted on Comedy Central in June 2019, and showcased Castro’s provocative, unique voice in the comedy landscape.
Memorable sketches included “Welcome to America,” about a student in a class of recent immigrants trying to wrap his head around the reality of tragedy as well as “What the Sex Talk Looks Like Now” and “A Sick Child’s Dying Wish”.
Castro is known for using modern Latinxidentity (misconceptions and all) as a fresh filter for cultural commentary about our daily lives and the zeitgeist — and it is all rooted in his personal experience.
Castro is the creator, executive producer, writer and star of the series.
The series is produced by Comedy Central Productions(CCP).
