QUIBI ORDERS ACCLAIMED SKETCH SERIES “ALTERNATINO” FROM ARTURO CASTRO AND COMEDY CENTRAL PRODUCTIONS

Los Angeles, CA – May 12, 2020 – Quibi today ordered critically-acclaimed sketch series ‘ALTERNATINO’ from series creator, writer and star Arturo Castro (‘Broad City,’ ‘Narcos,’ ‘Flipped’) and Comedy Central Productions.

Season one of ‘ALTERNATINO’ debuted on Comedy Central in June 2019, receiving praise from critics and breaking through the cultural zeitgeist with highly-viewed sketches showcasing a provocative, unique voice in the comedy landscape. Among the standouts from the first season are “Welcome to America,” about a student in a class of recent immigrants trying to wrap his head around the reality of tragedy, and “What the Sex Talk Looks Like Now. “A Sick Child’s Dying Wish,” was recently named one of the 50 best sketches of the decade by Vulture.

“I’m thrilled to launch Alternatino in this exciting new platform while being able to remain a part of the Comedy Central family. I’m also thrilled about the churro truck they offered as part of the deal. Thanks Quibi! Mmm…churros,” said series creator and star Arturo Castro.

Arturo Castro is creator, executive producer, writer and star of the series. His work in “Alternatino” was praised as one of “The Best TV performances of 2019” by IndieWire. The Washington Post called the show “impeccable satire.” Avalon’s David Martin, Jon Thoday, Richard Allen-Turner and Sam Saifer are executive producers alongside fellow executive producers Jay Martel and Ted Tremper. Ari Pearce and Manny Jaquez are the executives in charge for Comedy Central Productions. The series is produced by Comedy Central Productions (CCP).

‘ALTERNATINO’ 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 LatinX identity (misconceptions and all) as a fresh filter for cultural commentary about our daily lives and the zeitgeist… all rooted in Arturo’s personal experience.

[via press release from Quibi]
BOWEN YANG JOINS QUIBI’S “TRIP” FROM JOEL KIM BOOSTER
STEPHEN DUNN SET TO DIRECT COMEDY SERIES
· Quibi announced today that Bowen Yang (‘SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE’) has joined Joel Kim Booster’s comedy series ‘TRIP.’ Stephen Dunn is attached to direct the comedy series that is created and written by Booster.
· Created by Joel Kim Booster and set on the iconic Fire Island, ‘TRIP’ is an unapologetic, modern day rom-com inspired by Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The story centers around two best friends who set out to have a legendary week-long summer vacation with the help of cheap rosé and a cadre of eclectic friends.
· Yang stars as Bowen, Joel’s wise and witty best friend.
· Stephen Dunn (‘CLOSET MONSTER’) is set to direct.
· Yang is represented by UTA, 3 Arts, and Schreck Rose Dapello & Adams.
· Dunn is represented by WME, Mosaic, and Hansen Jacobson.
· ‘TRIP’ is written by Joel Kim Booster.
· ‘TRIP’ is executive produced by Tony Hernandez and Brooke Posch and is produced by Jax Media.
Bowen Yang Bio:
Bowen Yang is currently a featured player for “Saturday Night Live” after beginning as a writer last season. He also co-stars on the Comedy Central show “Awkwafina is Nora from Queens.” He is the co-host of the acclaimed podcast “Las Culturistas” and its live show, “I Don’t Think So, Honey,” which has sold out multiple venues nationally and been featured on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and “Today.” Yang has appeared as a guest star on HBO’s “High Maintenance,” Comedy Central’s “Broad City,” and in the feature “Isn’t It Romantic.”
Stephen Dunn Bio:
Stephen Dunn is a Canadian-born award-winning writer/director based in Los Angeles. Most recently, Stephen co-wrote and directed the episode “The Son” from season one of Apple+’s critically-acclaimed series Little America. The Hollywood Reporter wrote: “But the season’s finale, “The Son”, centered on a persecuted Syrian man (Haaz Sleiman) searching for a queer oasis, might well be its pinnacle, as well as the series’ baldest gambit to replace the Statue of Liberty.”
Stephen is also Executive Producing, writing, and will direct the reimagining of the iconic series Queer as Folk for the new NBCUniversal streaming service, Peacock.
Stephen’s debut feature, Closet Monster, had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2015, where it won the Canada Goose Award for Best Canadian Feature. Indiewire said of the film: “Closet Monster” may feature a talking hamster and a hefty volume of very bloody flashbacks-turned-fantasy, but Oscar’s issues continually remain real and relatable. Dunn plays around with perspective and style, but all the flash doesn’t obscure the film’s emotion and heart, which are deep and true.” The film was released theatrically by Strand.
Previously, Stephen’s short film series titled Pop-Up Porno premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. These shorts feature wild (and true) online-dating confessions curated by Stephen, who then worked with visual artists to translate them into pop-up-book form.
