Development News - October 28, 2021

Amazon's Once Upon a Time in Aztlan.

  • Jesse Garcia and Annie Gonzalez have been cast as series regulars on the drama pilot starring George Lopez. Garcia previously starred for three seasons in El Rey's From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series and in the second season of Netflix's Narcos: Mexico. Gonzalez currently recurs on Netflix's Gentefied, which returns for its second season next month.
  • Garcia will play Arturo Duran. After 13 years in federal prison, he has missed a lifetime's worth of changes. His second chance at life will be born through his transcendental artistry, which will single-handedly take possession of how the world sees the Southern California Dream.
  • Gonzalez will play Dolores "Lola" Duran, the youngest of Gervasio Duran's (Lopez) children. She's the heart of the family, a spitfire mother, and entrepreneur who runs a bar-cabaret with her ex. She is always game, at the party, and in the riot.
