(from ABC's press release, March 2016) Breakout comedian Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias is famous for his TV specials, Hawaiian shirts and self-proclaimed 'I'm not fat, I'm fluffy' physique. His new show takes inspiration from this real life. He plays Gabe, a touring standup comic, struggling to sustain his relationships at home while committed to being on the road four days out of every week. Gabe's long-time girlfriend, Carmen, runs the merchandise business out of "The Fluffy Shop," a custom warehouse Gabe built next door to the home they share with her 13-year-old son Frankie. Gabe's current success is a far cry from his background growing up without a dad. Gabe has helped raise his step-son Frankie overcompensating for his own deprived childhood, often spoiling the boy in an effort to provide him with the fun things little Gabe never had. Carmen is joined at the shop by Gabe's loving but incompetent best friend, Memo, and the shop handyman, Lance. When Gabe is off on the road performing he is often joined by his hustling manager, Reggie, who has worked with Gabe since the beginning and enjoys drafting off of Gabe's celebrity to try and meet women. This ragtag crew of friends are fiercely loyal to Gabe and, despite their many comedic failings, he is loyal to them, never forgetting his own humble origins. While excessive travel has built Gabe's career, it has also cost him in his relationship with Carmen. Forced to choose between his love of performing and spending more time at home, Gabe chooses his work and fans. This decision compels Carmen to break off their relationship. However, their mutual respect and love for Frankie now forces Gabe and Carmen to work out terms under which they will continue to co-parent her son together. This won't be easy since Carmen is a strict mom and Gabe tends to fly by the seat of his pants on parenting matters, but watching their give and take will be much of the fun in this show. Our stories will be told during the three days out of every week when Gabe is home in Long Beach facing up to his neglected responsibilities as a father, a boss and a friend.
