About:

Bordertown isn’t your typical Mickey Mouse cartoon, it’s got bite! Bordertown is a new animated comedy about two families living in a Southwest desert town on the U.S. – Mexico border.

The series takes a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America, where the U.S. Census forecasts that by 2017, ethnic minorities will become the majority. Set against this increasingly diverse backdrop, the comedy explores family, politics and everything in between with a cross-cultural wink.

With biting, satirical and just plain funny writing, the series revolves around a successful Mexican immigrant, Ernesto Gonzales (voiced by Nicholas Gonzalez) and dumb and obnoxious border patrol officer, Bud Buckwald voiced by Hank Azaria (Ray Donavan, The Simpson).

It’s the first American TV series which addresses the changing demographics of a country where Caucasians will soon become a minority while Latinos are becoming the “it” group.

More:

This new show needed to include as many Latinos creatives and on-camera talent. They hired longtime Latino activists and satirists Lalo Alcaraz (La Cucaracha editorial cartoonist and host of Pocho Hour of Power on KPFK Radio) and Ask a Mexican columnist Gustavo Arellano as consulting producers/writers with Valentina L. Garza serving as supervising producer.

In front of the camera three more voice actors, Jacqueline Pinol, Efren Ramirez, Carlos Alazraqui join Gonzalez in voicing seven of the series regular characters.

Beginning on January 3, 2016 you can catch the first season of Bordertown on Sundays on FOX 9:30/8:30c.
