Although you might assume that HBO is only interested in finding their next big blockbuster show right now, you can’t deny that they are also taking chances on some pretty niche stuff. Los Espookys might be one of the strangest and most intriguing TV trailers I’ve seen in quite a while. Created by Fred Armisen (Portlandia, SNL), Ana Fabrega (The Chris Gethard Show) and Julio Torres (SNL), it takes place in Mexico City and revolves around “a group of friends turning their love for horror into a peculiar business.” This is a half-hour Spanish-language comedy series that seems to fall somewhere between What We Do in the Shadows and Twin Peaks. Fabrega, Torres and Armisen also star alongside Bernardo Velasco and Cassandra Ciangherotti while Lorne Michaels is on board as executive producer. Los Espookys premieres on June 14th; check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
