Gabriel Iglesias To Star In ABC Comedy
El Paso’s favorite fluffy comedian is getting his own network television show.
According to the entertainment trade magazine Variety, ABC is working with Iglesias on a half-hour scripted comedy that he will co-produce and star in.
The premise sounds like a tried-and-true relationship/buddy comedy. Per Variety:
The [show] focuses on a commitment-phobic bachelor who reconnects with his friend who has just broken up with the woman he has been with since pre-school."
It's not known which roll Iglesias will play, although he seems more suited to play the down-in-the-dumps friend than a George Clooney-type bachelor, dontchathink?
The untitled program is still in the development stage. No word yet on when ABC plans to air it.
For now, if you need a dose of Fluffy's unique brand of humor you'll have to check out his new stand-up act,The FluffyMania World Tour, at the Don Haskins Center on Friday May 19, 2017.
