The Señor Loro Show – “El Piloto”

This show-within-a-show centers on the behind the scenes antics of a late-night sketch show produced by an edgy, Latino, mustachioed puppet parrot host, Señor Loro and his ragtag posse of immigrant misfits. Loro’s growing high brow insecurities about producing the show cause mayhem, even as he brazenly bungles his way towards a TV deal!

The Señor Loro Show” was first developed as a sketch variety show/sitcom in an earlier incarnation called “LosTiteres.TV” at the 2008 Producer’s Guild of America Diversity Program, but I’ve since renamed the show to make it more accessible to non-Spanish speakers. The previous title was simply, “ThePuppets.TV” in Spanish. I think this change is appropriate, because it directs your focus to the lead character, which is really where the show is centered.

This particular sitcom adaptation of my long-running YouTube webisode series, reveals that Señor Loro is a recently arrived Cuban exile parrot who claims to have reluctantly been Fidel Castro’s personal pet. He sets up a studio in an “undisclosed location” in Hollywood where he regularly broadcasts his wacky internet show starring his hodgepodge troupe of puppets in provocative sketches coupled with odd assemblages of celebrity stars. All this, to aim for his dream of receiving a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Series.

I just finished this version of the pilot for the HBO Access 2017 Writing Fellowship.

Just created a reel of original characters & imitations for sketch comedy auditions.

And to think ~ I didn’t even pull my Ricardo Montalban impression from his Fantasy Island days! “Smiles, everyone, Smiles!”

The 5 minute original characters & imitations reel can be seen here:

For a more in-depth view of the “original characters”, the Extended MIX contains:

* Graphics! More of my comedy writing! 3 Times the Special Effects!

* Plus: An Endorsement from Bob Hope!…

(I played “Bob Hope” for the real Bob Hope in college. He said kind words about me, and awarded me a scholarship.)

Don’t worry, all the jokes in it are 99% Fat Free.

 

LosTiteres.TV Returns for Season Dos!

LosTiteres.TV returns for Season Dos!

LosTiteres.TV returns this fall for a second season, run by parrot producer: Señor Loro.

One day it’ll land on television, but for now, the webisode series is self-contained, inexpensive to executive produce, and the webisodes serve to display my filmmaking and puppetry work, and well as to amuse subscribers & fans!

The show has harnessed me many a job opportunity, with the Jim Henson Company as well as Swazzle.
