Latino King of Comedy in for Showtime Series

Alex Reymundo, one of the Original Latin Kings of Comedy, is attached to star in "Hick-Spanic," a comedy series in development at Showtime.

Loosely based on his life and stand-up routine, "Hick-Spanic" centers on a guy of Mexican decent (Reymundo) and his blond-haired, blue-eyed hillbilly wife who live in a Kentucky town with their children, surrounded by the sides of the family who are constantly battling about who married up.

Reymundo is also set to headline his own one-hour stand-up comedy special for the premium cable network, and to host the upcoming comedy specials "The Latin Divas of Comedy" and "Payaso Comedy Slam."

Reymundo, whose feature credits include the 2003 film "El Matador" and the animated feature "Cars," performed in the Original Latin Kings of Comedy alongside George Lopez, Cheech Marin, Joey Medina and Paul Rodriguez.
