Gaz Alazraki ("Nosotros Los Nobles," "Club de Cuervos") will direct and executive produce the pilot. Hailing from Lionsgate Television, the series is inspired by 3Pas Studios and Pantelion Films' box office hit "How to Be A Latin Lover" and will be produced for Apple by Lionsgate Television, 3Pas Studios and The Tannenbaum Company.
