It's a big day a Fuse as we announce a years-long partnership with one of our collective's favorite stand-up personalities, Gabriel Iglesias. The union will facilitate a number of specials and original programs, beginning with a thirty minute field-based comedy, Fluffy Breaks Even! (working title). With the Hawaiian shirt-donning laugh-master at the helm, production for Fluffy Breaks Even! commences today as Iglesias hits the Las Vegas stop of his stand-up tour.
October will see the digital premiere of the six episode series, featuring Fluffy, AKA Iglesias, aligned with friends and fellow jokers Martin Moreno and Rick Gutierrez. As the trio voyage to new cities and stages, meet fans, and indulge in the local flavors, they'll be tasked with balancing vacation-sized meals with equally as robust workouts. Hence: Fluffy Breaks Even!
“I’m really excited about this new series with my long time comedy friends Martin and Rick,” Iglesias expands. “It incorporates all of my favorite things – stand-up, food, and my FANS – with one of my least favorite things: exercise. Fuse is the perfect place for my series and I can’t wait to share it with everyone!”
Looking beyond Fluffy Breaks Even!, executive production by Iglesias is underway for three one-hour Fuse comedy specials in addition to one other undisclosed series.
SVP of Content at Fuse, Lynnette Ramirez, elaborated, “We are excited to be partnering with one of the most unique voices in comedy, and an individual who has such a strong connection with a loyal fan base that follows him across social media and the country."
