At 30, Julio (Chris Estrada) doesn’t have it all together. He still lives at home with his parents in South Central Los Angeles and he’s still – sometimes – dating his high-school girlfriend. But he does have a job helping to rehabilitate ex-gang members through non-profit Hugs Not Thugs. When his older cousin Luis (Frankie Quinones) gets released from prison and moves in with Julio and his family, Julio’s day job turns into a 24/7 project—and not always a rewarding one.
Based on Estrada’s life and stand-up, Hulu’s This Fool also stars Laura Patalano, Michelle Ortiz, Julia Vera and The Sopranos’ Michael Imperioli as Minister Payne.
The show is written and executive produced by Estrada, Pat Bishop, Jake Weisman and Matt Ingebretson. Jonathan Groff and Fred Armisen serve as executive producers on the series, which is produced by ABC Signature.
This Fool premieres on Hulu with all ten of its first-season episodes available on Friday, August 12.
