Paramount Network Developing Latino Sketch Comedy Series ‘Browntown’
Next month, the Spike TV network will be rebranded as the Paramount Network starting January 18th, and one of the projects in development includes a Latino sketch comedy series. According to Deadline, the half-hour sketch series, titled Browntown, is in the works from Doug Greiff and Beatriz Acevedo. The series will take place “in a fictional, predominantly Latino neighborhood designed to reflect today’s diverse America.” Here’s more info on the project from Deadline’s report:
Each half-hour episode will feature recurring characters from the Browntown neighborhood, and revolve around a central theme designed to bring awareness and celebrate issues that are especially relevant to Latino youth in America. Episodes will consist of studio-based sketches, digital shorts, music parodies, animated shorts, and more.
The cast has not yet been announced, but it’s expected to feature a mix of “emerging comics, improv actors, popular social influencers and celebrity cameos.”
