HBO orders comedy Los Espookys from Fred Armisen, Lorne Michaels

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the foreign-language comedy Los Espookys from Fred Armisen (Saturday Night Live) and Lorne Michaels (Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon) has been ordered to series by HBO. The project is a half-hour comedy series that is entirely in Spanish.

Los Espookys is set in a strange and dreamy version of present-day Mexico City and follows a group of friends turning their love for horror into a peculiar business. The series will star Bernardo Velasco, Cassandra Ciangherotti, Ana Fabrega, and Julio Torres.

Velasco stars as Renaldo, the leader of Los Espookys who is noble, kind, serene, and obsessed with gore. He’s always running out of cell phone minutes. Ciangherottie plays Ursula, a calm and collected dental assistant who provides teeth for the group’s monsters. She loves horror and her sister Tati but above all, teeth. Fabrega will play Tati, Ursula’s sister and Los Espooky’s test dummy. She’s constantly juggling several odd jobs, such as breaking in other people’s shoes and testing child safety locks. Torres stars as Renaldo’s best friend Andres, a dark and mysterious heir to a chocolate empire. His only true nemesis is his gorgeous boyfriend.

Armisen will portray Renaldo’s reliable uncle Tico who lives in L.A. He’s a prodigious valet driver living his dream of parking cars.

Fernando Frias is serving as director on the Los Spookys pilot. The project is written by Armisen alongside Fabrega and Torres and will be produced by Michaels’ Broadway Video in association with Antigravico and Más Mejor. Executive producers include Armisen, Michaels, and Andrew Singer with Fabrega, Torres, and Alice Mathias set to co-executive produce.
