 for the comedic animated series Caesar and Chuy. The second animated series
 in LATV's original programming block, Caesar and Chuy will premiere

 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
 Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:00 p.m. PT, the show consists of eight to 10
 sketches with interlaced music videos. Skits on the show parody popular
