DESCRIPTION:
(from Comedy Central's press release, April 2019) Comedy Central today released the official trailer for its next great sketch series, Alternatino with Arturo Castro, premiering on Tuesday, June 18 at 10:30pm ET/PT. This summer, creator, writer and star Arturo Castro (Broad City, Narcos) tackles more than 45 characters in sketches over ten episodes that showcase his perspective on relationships, everyday awkward moments and much more. Each episode in addition to the sketches has a scripted narrative thread that features a heightened version of Arturo as he goes about daily life as a Latin millennial. "There's no one better to continue Comedy Central's unparalleled legacy in sketch comedy than the undeniably talented writer, performer and overall brilliant Arturo Castro," said Sarah Babineau and Jonas Larsen, Executive Vice Presidents and Co-Heads of Talent and Development, Comedy Central. "Alternatino really stands out for not only how funny it is, and Arturo's impressive range as an actor, but also in how it challenges stereotypes of what it means to be a Latin Millennial." "Comedy Central has been my home for the past 6 years, my literal home, they have big offices and central heating. I couldn't imagine better partners to bring this show to life," said Castro. "I'm honored to be a part of this family and to have the opportunity to amplify the voice of a community that seems to be under siege at the moment. Hopefully, by watching, people will realize that the human experience is at its core the same, no matter what you look like or how much you like brunch, matcha, or fair trade friendship bracelets. Mmm, matcha... " Alternatino with Arturo Castro continues Comedy Central's unparalleled legacy of developing the biggest and most culturally relevant sketch comedy - launching the careers of stars like Dave Chappelle, Amy Schumer, Nick Kroll, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele - using modern Latino identity (misconceptions and all) as a fresh filter for cultural commentary about our daily lives and the zeitgeist... all rooted in his personal experience.
