Michelle Ortiz in This Fool

This Fool series on Hulu streaming service proved to be one of the hilarious near-all Latino comedies this year that stars Chris Estrada, Frankie Quinones, Michael Imperioli, and Michelle Ortiz.

With this comedic ensemble, the series follows the lives of two relatives’ relationships with each other, family, ex-girlfriend, and a rehabilitation center for ex-cons.

Here is the full description of the series:

This Fool is an irrelevant, cinematic half-hour comedy set in working-class South Central Los Angeles. The show centers around Julio Lopez, a 30-year-old who still lives at home, has been dating his girlfriend on and off since high school, and finds any excuse to avoid dealing with his problems. Julio works at Hugs Not Thugs, a gang rehabilitation non-profit, where he butts heads with his older cousin Luis, an ex-gang member who just got out of prison and moved in with Julio and his family.
