From Family Guy’s Mark Hentemann and Seth MacFarlane, the series will explore family, politics and everything in between. It centers on two very different families living in a fictional Southwest desert town on the U.S. – Mexico border.

Gonzalez’s character is described as an ambitious immigrant and family man, who has been in the country less than 10 years, but is already doing better than his neighbor Bud Buckwald (voiced by Hank Azaria), which, it turns out, is a bit of an issue for the less-industrious native.


Azaria’s character is a married father of three and a Border Patrol agent who is just a tad behind the times and feels slightly threatened by the cultural changes transforming his neighborhood.

In addition to Gonzalez and Azaria, the voice cast members include Alex Borstein, Missi Pyle, Judah Friedlander and guest voice Efren Ramirez.

HBO Renews Rodriguez’s Medical Comedy “Getting On” for Second Season

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.
