In an Apple Press release, Apple TV+ announced expanding its international genre/category with the Spanish/English comedy series, Acapulco.

Mexican actor Eugenio Derbez is starring and producing the new half-hour comedy series.

New Comedy Series "Acapulco"

Acapulco is based on the movie How to Be a Latin Lover, which also starred Derbez.

Derbez will be leading the production of the series alongside creators, Austin Winsberg (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist), Eduardo Cisneros (Instructions Not Included, Half Brothers), and Jason Shuman (Role Models, Half Brothers).
