Apple Studios has published the list of actors joining the cast Apple TV+’s bilingual comedy series 'Acapulco' which includes: Jessica Collins, Chord Overstreet, Vanessa Bauche, Rafael Cebrián, Fernando Carsa and Regina Reynoso round out the ensemble cast, joining lead character Eugenio Derbez.
Enrique Arrizon, Damian Alcázar, Camila Perez and Raphael Alejandro also star. The series is inspired by 3Pas Studios and Pantelion Films’ 2017 Derbez hit 'How to Be a Latin Lover.' Veteran Richard Shepard has been tapped to direct the pilot episode for Lionsgate Television.
Created by Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist creator Austin Winsberg, Eduardo Cisneros and Jason Shuman, Acapulco is a half-hour Spanish- and English-language comedy that centers on Maximo (Arrizon), a young Mexican man whose dream comes true when he gets the job of a lifetime at the hottest resort in Acapulco. But soon he realizes that the gig is far more complicated than he ever imagined as all of his beliefs and morals start to be questioned.
The show takes place in 1984, with Derbez narrating and playing the present-day version of the main character. Also reprising his role from the movie is Alejandro, who plays Hugo, Older Maximo’s nephew. For more, read the full Deadline report.
