Apple has given us our first glimpse of new comedy series Acapulco two weeks before it's worldwide premiere on Apple TV+.
“Acapulco” tells the story of 20-something Máximo Gallardo (Enrique Arrizon), whose dream comes true when he gets the job of a lifetime as a cabana boy at the hottest resort in Acapulco. He soon realizes the job is far more complicated than he ever imagined and in order to succeed, he must learn to navigate a demanding clientele, a mercurial mentor and a complicated home life, without losing his way to shortcuts or temptations. The series, set in 1984, is narrated by Derbez, who portrays the present-day version of the main character, Máximo Gallardo.
The ensemble cast starring alongside Derbez includes Arrizon, Fernando Carsa, Damián Alcázar, Camila Perez, Chord Overstreet, Vanessa Bauche, Regina Reynoso, Raphael Alejandro, Jessica Collins, Rafael Cebrián, Regina Orozco and Carlos Corona.
Based on the film 'How To By A Latin Lover', the series is created by Austin Winsberg, Eduardo Cisneros and Jason Shuman and will premiere October 8th on Apple TV+. The show is dual language, regularly switching between Spanish and English dialogue. It's unclear if Apple are releasing the show one week at a time, one week at a time but with one or two episodes to start with or all at once.
