On Monday, Variety reported that Amazon-owned streaming service IMDb TV has greenlit Serrano's series Primo, with The Good Place's Michael Schur attached to executive produce.
Serrano will write and executive produce the single-cam comedy series, which draws inspiration from his childhood growing up in San Antonio.

IMDb TV originally announced that the series was in development in May of this year.

“Do you remember when the Spurs won the 2014 title after having their hearts broken in the 2013 Finals? That’s what I feel like right now. I couldn’t be happier, I couldn’t be prouder, I couldn’t be more thankful,” Serrano told Variety.
“Honestly, I still kind of can’t even believe that this is happening.”
