Los Espookys star Julio Torres is headed back to HBO with his brand new series Little Films.
According to Variety, the six-episode series is set to follow Julio as he attempts to find his lost “little golden oyster.”
“The people he encounters as he searches for it, and the musings he has along the way become points of departure for introspective, often eerie comedic stories about outsiders navigating an increasingly corporate and rapidly dysfunctional New York City,” the synopsis adds.
Production on the forthcoming series is set to start in February, with Torres signed on to star, direct, and executive produce.
Dave McCary and Emma Stone from Fruit Tree have also been tapped to produce alongside Irony Point’s Alex Bach and Daniel Power.
In a statement, Torres opened up about his excitement for the new series, writing: “We here at Julio™️ are so excited to be joined by many friends in weaving these fantastical stories shot entirely on stages.”
The exciting news comes a couple of weeks after HBO announced that Torres’ hit series Los Espookys was cancelled after two seasons.
“We are thrilled we could deliver the unique and hilarious second season of Los Espookys to viewers finally, more than three years after the series premiere, due to pandemic delays,” the cable network said in a statement on 2 December.
“We thank Julio, Ana and Fred for this imaginative and delightfully bizarre world they created. We are not currently planning on a third season, but we would welcome the opportunity to work with this cast and crew in the future.”
In addition to Little Films, Torres is also working on another project for HBO titled Lucky as part of his two-year first-look deal with the cable network.
The show has been described as a “coming of self” story about a trans non-binary dog-obsessed misfit who teams with other LGBTQ+ people in Brooklyn’s gig economy.
We can’t wait to see what Little Films has in store.
