Comedy Central has released the official trailer for its new Latinx sketch series "Alternatino with Arturo Castro," showcasing the daily life of a Hispanic millennial.
'Latinos are at the forefront of a cultural conversation around immigration and American identity. Yet, we still don’t see much about their experience in popular culture," CC said in a press release, "In Alternatino with Arturo Castro, 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."
The Guatemalan actor tackles more than 45 characters in over ten episodes.
“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," Castro said about his new project.
