Hulu has announced that it has greenlit a new comedy series from comedian Chris Estrada titled “This Fool.”
The series follows Julio Lopez (Estrada), a self-described “punk ass bitch” who still lives at home and goes out of his way to help everyone but himself. The half-hour series sees Lopez work at a gang-rehabilitation non-profit and his quest to overcome his codependency issues with his family as he navigates working class life in South Central Los Angeles. Frankie Quinones and Michelle Ortiz will also have recurring roles in the show.
“Breaking out new and distinct voices continues to be a hallmark of Hulu Original programming, and we are incredibly excited to add Chris Estrada to our roster of multihyphenate creators and to bring This Fool to our viewers,” said Craig Erwich, president Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment.
“This Fool” is written and executive produced by Estrada and Corporate creators Jake Weisman, Matt Ingebretson and Pat Bishop with Fred Arminsen and Black-ish EP Jonathan Groff also executive producing. It is produced by ABC Signature.
