The Dallas-based independently-produced comedy series THE REALTY (RISAS EN VENTA) won the Best Sitcom award at the Miami Web Fest 2021, the premier international festival for web series.
“We’re trying to highlight our Latino community beyond stereotypes,” said executive producer and cast member Raul Arriaga. “We shot the series both in full English and full Spanish, thanks to our diverse and talented cast.”
This comedic web series goes beyond stereotypes to tell funny stories about Latino real estate agents and their crazy clients. The Dallas-based cast features Juan Fiol (QUEEN OF THE SOUTH), Marisol Vera (FAR OUT FIESTA, QUEEN OF THE SOUTH), Vicente Moctezuma (GHOST NOTE), Raul Arriaga, and newcomer Gaby Gonzalez as series regulars, with a trove of brilliant guest stars, including Joe Rojas Jr. (MESSIAH, THE SON), Nellie Sciutto (BAIL OUT), and Gerardo Davila (WALKER, THE PURGE), just to name a few.
The production team also accomplished gender parity both in front and behind the camera, as part of the team’s commitment to diversity and inclusion in storytelling.
