Comedy 'Primo' from Shea Serrano and Mike Schur Ordered to Series at IMDb TV

IMDb TV has today given a series order to the original comedy series Primo created by The Ringer writer Shea Serrano. An episode count and premiere date window were not immediately announced.

The comedy will follow a Mexican-American teenager balancing cultural norms, college aspirations, societal expectations and the hectic home life of being raised by his single mom and five uncles.

Serrano will executive produce with Mike Schur, Morgan Sackett and David Miner. Universal Television, Fremulon and 3 Arts Entertainment will produce.

"Do you remember when the Spurs won the 2014 title after having their hearts broken in the 2013 Finals? That's what I feel like right now. I couldn't be happier, I couldn't be prouder, I couldn't be more thankful. Honestly, I still kind of can't even believe that this is happening," said Serrano.

"When I first met Shea Serrano, I personally guaranteed him that someday I would make him feel like the 2014 Spurs did after winning the NBA championship. I'm thrilled to have achieved my goal. And I'm doubly thrilled to work with him and IMDb TV on this hilarious and heartwarming show," added Schur.
