“LOS ESPOOKYS” Arriving Late Night In June

Hey, there is no trailer yet but there is a premiere date for Fred Armisen’s LOS ESPOOKYS. It is coming in June, June 14 in fact. Below is the official press release regarding.  




Executive Produced By Lorne Michaels And Fred Armisen; Co-Executive Produced By Ana Fabrega, Julio Torres, Alice Mathias And Nate Young 


The comedy series LOS ESPOOKYS begins its six-episode season FRIDAY, JUNE 14 (11:00-11:30pm) on HBO. From Julio Torres and Ana Fabrega, alongside Fred Armisen and Lorne Michaels of “Saturday Night Live,” the primarily Spanish-language show follows a group of friends who turn their love for horror into a peculiar business, providing horror to those who need it, in a dreamy Latin American country where the strange and eerie are just part of daily life. Starring Ana Fabrega, Julio Torres, Cassandra Ciangherotti and Bernardo Velasco as The Espookys with José Pablo Minor and recurring guest star Fred Armisen, LOS ESPOOKYS was created by Fred Armisen & Ana Fabrega & Julio Torres; executive produced by Lorne Michaels, Fred Armisen and Andrew Singer; co-executive produced by Ana Fabrega, Julio Torres, Alice Mathias and Nate Young; pilot written by Fred Armisen & Ana Fabrega & Julio Torres; pilot directed by Fernando Frias. Produced by Broadway Video in association with Antigravico and Más Mejor, and Oscar-winning Chilean production company Fabula 

Now, all we need to get in the mood for this one is at least a couple of pics, instead of the same one reused or better yet we need a trailer to set up the series. But I am wondering why they shuttled this series to Friday late night. They are expanding to Monday nights but this one doesn’t make the cut?  Maybe, LOS ESPOOKYS may be considered an experimental series? To use the release’s language the show is a ‘Spanish-language show.’ It is not a show, however, regulated to HBO Latino but the main HBO channel, so perhaps it is an experiment to see if the main channel can draw Spanish-language programming. Hey, I say there is always closed captioning if you aren’t bilingual. Are you ready for more LOS ESPOOKYS?
