COMEDY CENTRAL'S NEW SKETCH SERIES "ALTERNATINO WITH ARTURO CASTRO" RELEASES OFFICIAL TRAILER, PREMIERING JUNE 18

LAUGH ALONG AS ARTURO CASTRO SHARES HIS EXPERIENCES AS A LATIN MILLENNIAL IN THE UNITED STATES

ALTERNATINO WITH ARTURO CASTRO FOLLOWS NEW EPISODES OF DRUNK HISTORY

New York, NY April 18, 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.

Episodes of Alternatino with Arturo Castro will be available the day after premiere via On Demand, the Comedy Central App and cc.com. In addition, episodes will launch the day after each linear premiere on iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Fandango Now, Google Play, Microsoft Movies & TV, VUDU, Sony PlayStation Video, and Verizon Flexview, and clips from the series will be available on the Comedy Central YouTube channel and Comedy Central web and social-media platforms including Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and cc.com.

Arturo Castro is creator, executive producer, writer and star of the series. Avalon's David Martin, Jon Thoday, Richard Allen-Turner and Sam Saifer are executive producers alongside fellow executive producers Nick Jasenovec and Jay Martel. Ari Pearce and Jose Acevedo are executives in charge for Comedy Central.

Comedy Central gives audiences access to a world of super funny, personally relatable, culturally relevant, and provocative comedy that tells the funny truths of life, every day and everywhere. From award-winning late-night, scripted and animated series to stand-up specials, short-form and sketch, Comedy Central has it all.
