From New York Times best-selling author Shea Serrano and Emmy-winning producer Michael Schur (The Good Place, Parks and Recreation), Primo is a coming-of-age comedy, inspired by Serrano’s life growing up in San Antonio.
Rafa Gonzales is a wide-eyed 16-year-old being raised by his clever mother, Drea, and his five overbearing uncles (Rollie, Mike, Ryan, Jay, and Mondo). Rafa is at an inflection point, as three big life moments coincide: he and his friends are nearing the end of high school; he’s pretty sure he just met the girl of his dreams; and he just found out he has a real chance to become the first person in his family to go to college.
Over the course of the series, the group - Rafa, his mom, uncles, friends, and crush - will all affect each other and help one another grow in ways they weren’t expecting, whether they like it or not.
All eight episodes of the first season will be available to stream on 19 May.
