Clip y Save: Fall screenings of ‘Bordertown,’ maybe near you
In case you’re just some random Googler who stumbled across this page, here’s the synopsis: BORDERTOWN satirizes life on the U.S.-Mexico border — la migra, changing demographics, religion, the drug war, and so much more.
Yeah, part of it is shameless self-promotion — I’m a consultant, while Lalo is a staff writer. But we’re doing it because we truly do believe this series is the Great Brown Hope: the network program that will finally show raza in all our hilarious, proud, chingón glory and that will become a ratings smash that’ll allow the beginning of #televisionreconquista.
But Lalo and I are restless, so this summer we went to our FOX bosses with a proposal: Let us screen one episode to the public, to build up buzz and to show community members that Bordertown isn’t another ¡Rob! They agreed, and so Lalo and I have planned a Fall full of screenings!
Anyoo, below is the current, tentative schedule. Unless noted, admittance to each screening is FREE. AND either Lalo or Gustavo (or both!) will give out free swag afterwards and answer any questions you may have. Keep checking back for new screenings.
NOTE: Screenings with next-to-no information are Lalo’s because he’s a lagger like that haha.
