Hey, I'm Emma Ramos & Irene Lucio!
B.U.T.S. is a comedy variety show in the style of Key and Peele with the edginess and style of Broad City.With crazy comedic endings, the series seeks to subvert preconceived notions about our stereotypes surrounding Latinos and women.
Our two heroines are Irene (ee-rain-eh) and Emma (Eh-ma), are Latina actresses that embody and subvert such stereotypes. But BUTS goes beyond a “but” argument to Latino cliché’s, it is straight up two Latinas making fun of themselves and their surroundings. In each episode they portray different characters that parody and satirize the many ‘afflictions’ of the modern day woman. The series is anchored in millennial truisms represented through a first generation Latina lens.
B.U.T.S. (Billingual Underrepresented Titless Sallies) was nominated for the Imagen awards and is the only project within its category of nominees without formal sponsorships or film production companies attached. It’s just two Latinas running the show! We are proud to be among our heroes for this award ceremony coming up in September.
Bilingual, Underrepresented, Titless, Sallies. We are spoofing Latino stereotypes on TV!
