Mel Rodriguez is getting on with his current acting job…
HBO has finalized a deal for a second-season pickup of the cable network’s offbeat medical comedy Getting On, which stars the 40-year-old Latino actor.
Rodriguez portrays new supervising nurse Patsy de la Serda on the HBO comedy, which also stars Laurie Metcalf, Alex Borstein and Niecy Nash.
The order is for six episodes, matching the size of Getting On‘s first season.
HBO brass had been high on the show, an adaptation of the BBC series of the same name, and had been looking to renew it contingent of sorting out budget issues.
Well received by critics, Getting On was a modest ratings performer but also was a word-of-mouth success.
Rodriguez’s previous credits include a recurring role on Community and a brief appearance in 2012’s Panic Room.
