Fabrica de Huevos (Egg Factory), an Audacious Primetime Comedy Series, Launches on Azteca America on May 16
First-of-its-kind animated programming on Spanish-language TV
Azteca America will challenge stereotypes about Hispanics
LOS ANGELES, May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On May 16, Azteca America, THE Mexican network for US Hispanic audiences, launches Fabrica de Huevos, an animated comedy program at 10:00 PM Eastern / 9:00 PM Central. This bold and irreverent show created by and for Latinos in the U.S., is a different approach to what Spanish-television offers viewers in primetime. The new comedy adventure starts when animated egg characters cross the U.S.-Mexico border.
The new series is produced by the creators of HuevoCartoons, brothers Gabriel and Rodolfo Riva Palacio Alatriste. Their Huevo Cartoon movie was the highest grossing film in the history of Mexican cinema. This unique vignette-style show combines live action and animation with the comedic flair that U.S. Hispanic audiences crave. Also featured in the sketches is the very talented Wendy Braga Peraza -- the vivacious female side-kick who perfectly complements the offbeat comedy of the Riva Palacio Alatriste brothers. Rounding out the cast is the versatile writer and performer Fernando Meza Munoz who also lends his voice to several of the delightful animated characters.
"Fabrica de Huevos uses wit and verve to address the unique challenges Hispanics in this country face as they adapt to their adoptive homeland," said Marlene Braga, Vice President of Programming for Azteca America.
Fabrica de Huevos will air on Wednesdays and Fridays at 10:00 PM Eastern/9:00 PM Central as part of Azteca America's comedy lineup which starts on May 14 with Buenas Noches America, followed by El Pelado de la Noche on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This unprecedented lineup will have viewers laughing all evening and all week-long.
