With the smash hit Portlandia coming to an end next year after eight seasons it is only natural that the extremely versatile Fred Armisen would be looking for his next gig. According to Deadline, a project co-written by Armisen titled Mexico City: Only Good Things Happen has gotten a pilot order over at HBO. Also writing the show are Ana Fabrega (The Chris Gethard Show) and Julio Torres (Saturday Night Live). The show will be a comedy in Spanish that takes place in Mexico City as the title suggests.
Just like Portlandia, Mexico City: Only Good Things Happen will have Lorne Michaels (Saturday Night Live) as an Executive Producer. Fernando Frias (Rezeta) is set to direct the pilot.
