- A sample of Alcaraz' painfully funny work
Alcaraz has begun work on a new show, Bordertown, executive-produced by Family Guy, American Dad and The Cleveland Show creator Seth MacFarlane. Having illustrated ”Latino USA: A Cartoon History," authored Migra Mouse: Political Cartoons On Immigration and contributed to the New York Times, the Village Voice, the L.A. Times and Variety, as well as numerous other publications in his double decade-spanning career, Alcaraz's stop in San Antonio is a must-do. Bordertown, which premieres on Fox January 3, 2016, is set in the fictional locale of Mexifornia and contrasts the experiences of Bud Buckwald, a white American border patrol agent, and Ernesto Gonzalez, a recent Mexican immigrant who is eager to thrive in his new home. Y'know, the American Dream.
As a Seth Macfarlane and Lalo Alcaraz venture, Bordertown is sure to be chock full of irreverent humor and satirical tomfoolery, but with a serious undercurrent of commentary and political potency. It looks pretty frickin' hilarious, too.
