Freevee Slots Premiere Date for New Comedy 'Primo' Created by Shea Serrano

Freevee has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original comedy series Primo created by Shea Serrano.

All 8 episodes of the first season will be available on Friday, May 19.

Inspired by Serrano's life growing up, the coming-of-age comedy follows Rafa Gonzales, a wide-eyed 16-year-old being raised by his clever mother, Drea, and his five overbearing uncles (Rollie, Mike, Ryan, Jay, and Mondo) as they live their lives on the southside of San Antonio. Rafa is at an inflection point, as three big life moments coincide: he and his friends are nearing the end of high school; he's pretty sure he just met the girl of his dreams; and he just found out he has a real chance to become the first person in his family to go to college. Over the course of the series, the group - Rafa, his mom, uncles, friends, and crush - will all affect each other and help one another grow in ways they weren't expecting, whether they like it or not.

The comedy stars Ignacio Diaz-Silverio, Johnny Rey Diaz, Christina Vidal, Henri Esteve, Martin Martinez, Jonathan Medina, Carlos Santos, Migel Siwabessy, Efrain Villa and Stakiah Lynn Washington. 

Serrano executive produces with Michael Schur, David Miner, Morgan Sackett, Peter Murrieta and Lisa Muse Bryant. Amazon Studios, Universal Television, Fremulon and 3 Arts Entertainment produce.
