bicultural and bilingual experience in America. Caesar and Chuy provides
exactly that -- an irreverent slice-of-life commentary that is classic
LATV," said Rick Najera, VP Programming Development, LATV. "This series is
funny, top-notch and very on-the-mark. We certainly think it will connect
with our audience nationwide."
Caesar and Chuy are animated rockers and music video critics that
comment on people and music from their very cheeky point of view. Artistic
Warfare and Alfonso Arney Designs have teamed up as Over-Man Productions to
produce the new animated series. The executive producers are Keu Reyes and
Alfonso Arney. The voice of Caesar will be played by Nut'n Nice
creator/writer Mr. Reyes and the voice of Chuy will be played by Mr.

MAD TV and In Living Color as well as creating Latinologues. Airing on
