Maria Elena Fernandez, entertainment correspondent for NBCNews.com listed her top five Latinos in Hollywood. Landing at #3 is La Cucaracha cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz.
You might be familiar with “La Cucaracha,” the first nationally syndicated and politically themed Latino daily comic strip, created by Chicano activist Lalo Alcaraz 12 years ago. Now, Alcaraz is lending his satire to Fox’s new animated show “Bordertown,” which will premiere sometime next year. Produced by Seth MacFarlane (“Family Guy”), the show centers on a border patrol agent who is unhappy about the cultural changes in his neighborhood and a hard-working Mexican immigrant and father who loves his new country. Alcaraz is one of four Latino writers Fox hired to lend authenticity to the show but it’s his sharp wit we are counting on to make it shine.
