"Los Cowboys," an English-language, half-hour reality series from Corral 360, will premiere exclusively on Hulu this fall. "Los Cowboys" follows the lives of a group of Latino/a urban charros (Mexican cowboys) from Los Angeles and their quest to gain respect as bona fide charros and earning a slot in the Mexican Rodeo finals.
Much of the action takes place at Rancho Los Dorados in La Puente, California where the "Los Cowboys" team gathers to train in the rodeo arts in order to qualify for a coveted spot in the Mexican National Rodeo Championships. The cast is also featured in different settings in and around Los Angeles as they go about their busy urban lives as Angelenos.
"Los Cowboys" is a real-life dramedy starring a cast of Hispanic millennials and acculturated Latinos and Latinas living different urban city lives in Los Angeles, while simultaneously sharing a passion for horses and the art of Charreria, the Mexican rodeo, which began over 100 years ago as horse competitions among cattle ranchers. The men and women of "Los Cowboys" juggle the trials and tribulations of their daily career and family lives with their love and commitment to charro sports such as bull riding, wild bronc jumping, horse reining and trick roping. Their commitment and the excitement comes with major dangers and risks, but - for these urban cowboys - it will all be worth it if they manage to qualify for a coveted spot at the Rodeo Championships in Guadalajara, Mexico, and finally earn respect and credibility as charros.
The show features a wide range of opportunities for branded content and integration in categories ranging from home improvement, travel, food, beauty, telecommunications, alcohol, etc. Within four months of launching, Corral 360 has signed the Ram Truck brand as a title sponsor via Lightning Strikes Entertainment. Ram will play an integral part of the story line with continuous brand integration and several vehicle features.
