“Little Films” is not the only project that Julio Torres currently has in development. The former Saturday Night Live writer signed a first-look deal with HBO and HBO Max in February 2022. The deal included two projects, including the aforementioned “Little Films” and another comedy series, “Lucky.”
“Lucky” will be an auto-fictional portrait of Torres, a “non-binary, dog-obsessed misfit who joins forces with fellow queers in the world of Brooklyn’s gig economy.” Both series will comment on the fast-paced corporatization of New York that has taken place over the past decade or so. Set in Brooklyn, it is very likely to handle topics like gentrification and displacement with insight and levity.
The release date for “Little Films” hasn’t been announced yet, but HBO has officially greenlit six episodes of the series as of December 2022, per Variety. That means we’re sadly still many months away from seeing Torres’ quest for his oyster.
If you can’t wait to see Torres’ upcoming work, check out both seasons of his HBO series “Los Espookys,” his comedy special “My Favorite Shapes,” his hand-acting and impressions of colors on Instagram, his “Saturday Night Live” sketches like “Wells for Boys,” or even his earlier work on “The Chris Gethard Show.” Hopefully, we won’t have to wait too long for more news on these exciting new projects.
