About Los Espookys
Created by Julio Torres, Ana Fabrega and Fred Armisen, Los Espookys, the primarily Spanish-language (with English subtitles) comedy 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. The series will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms starting June 14.
Ana Fabrega, Julio Torres, Cassandra Ciangherotti and Bernardo Velasco star as Los Espookys, with José Pablo Minor and recurring guest star Fred Armisen. Renaldo (Bernardo Velasco), a horror and gore enthusiast, assembles his close friends to form Los Espookys, a business based on conjuring thrills and chills for a variety of clients.
Noble, kind, naïve – and always running out of cell phone minutes — Renaldo is joined in his enterprise by Úrsula (Cassandra Ciangherotti), a resilient and tenacious dental assistant, who handles the logistics and execution of Los Espookys’ projects; Úrsula’s sister, Tati (Ana Fabrega), who juggles several (very) odd jobs while acting as the group’s test dummy; and last – but certainly not least – Renaldo’s longtime best friend, Andrés (Julio Torres), the brooding heir to a chocolate empire, who longs to unlock the secrets to his past while avoiding his trophy boyfriend, Juan Carlos (José Pablo Minor). Occasionally dropping by is Tico (Fred Armisen), Renaldo’s benign, beloved uncle, who is happily living his own career dream as a parking-valet legend in LA.
Los Espookys is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and Fred Armisen, along with Broadway Video’s Andrew Singer and Alice Mathias. The series is co-executive produced by Ana Fabrega, Julio Torres and Nate Young.
