Interview with the creators and cast of “Wassup en LA?,” a Cuban American family sitcom

Just a little while ago, I joined three of the people behind “Wassup en LA?” for a Google+ Hangout. “Wassup en LA?” is a sitcom about a Cuban American family that moves from Miami to Los Angeles when one of the kids decides to chase his acting dreams.

We talked about being Cuban, portraying a Cuban family for mainstream TV audiences and the experiences, art, politics and history that inform their approach to making the show.

The creators are currently raising money on Kickstarter to get the project moving. Get more details and, if you’re so inclined, contribute to the Kickstarter fund here.

Here’s the interview. There’s a good chance we’ll chat with “Wassup en LA?” again, so let us know in the comments if you still have questions for next time.

Friends from the Los Angeles based Cuban run periodico, 20 de Mayo, serving the local community since 1969, created the wonderful collage of photos shown above.   The link to this weeks fine edition is here.

If you look close you´ll see yours truly as well as my personal, and Babalu friends Henry Agueros, and Zelde.  It was a great afternoon, and I’m pleased to report that no Che lovers made an appearance.

Markitos posted a two part video of the event at YouTube, here is Part 1.

Part 2 is here.

Huge thanks to Abel Perez, and Markitos.
