On January 3, BORDERTOWN premieres on FOX at 9:30pm ET. The new animated series, created by FAMILY GUY writer Mark Hentemann, tells the story of two families living in a town on the U.S.-Mexico border. The show has gotten the attention of many in the Latino digital space because the very cool satirist Lalo Alcaraz and the very talented Gustavo Arellano are part of the creative team. There is this inherent hope that having Lalo and Gustavo on the team, BORDERTOWN just might be the show that begins to explore issues that have been part of the digital conversation for years. We will be watching and seeing if the show does achieve that (having Lalo and Gustavo on the team is a good sign), but in the meantime, we leave you with several clips about what you might expect when the series launches in less than two weeks.
