)-- The hit television series Ceasar and Chuy received an Imagen Award Nomination for Best Variety Show. The animated duo is set to make a special appearance at the ceremony to be held this coming August 21, 2008 in Beverly Hills.
Ceasar and Chuy and the variety of animated characters in the program touch on Latino related issues dealing with politics and religion, to music and education. “We try to touch on serious issues, in a very funny way”, say Keu Reyes, a creator and writer on the show.
Ceasar and Chuy has quickly risen to be one of the most unique and cherished programs in television, attracting the interest of a diverse group of advertisers looking to integrate their product with the animated duo. Since the show’s inception, Ceasar and Chuy have managed to land big time sponsors, such as Universal Pictures and McDonalds, with many more advertisers in the near horizon.
“The Ceasar and Chuy show is an open canvas for product placement and advertising,” says Alfonso Amey, creator and head animator of the series. “From what Ceasar and Chuy wear, to what they eat, to where they go… the possibilities are endless,” continues Amey.
The word about Ceasar and Chuy have also spread beyond advertisers to many artists and celebrities that occasionally lay down their voice in the name of comedy. Last season, Ken Davitian, from the movies “Get Smart” and “Borat” was animated and played a special guest on the program. Other artists such as reggeaton top-sellers Alexis Y Fido, stopped by and hung out with Ceasar and Chuy during an episode.
“Ceasar and Chuy have revolutionized Latino animation in a tremendous way. The show has raised the bar when it comes to Latino comedy,” says Reyes when asked about the program’s impact. “We are very proud of the Imagen Award nomination, and it makes us feel as very appreciated,” adds Reyes.
Ceasar and Chuy can be seen at their new time Fridays at 9pm on LATV, and encore showings on Mondays at 6pm.
