A new Mexican black comedy is reportedly under production and is supposedly starring Erika Buenfil and Marimar Vega in lead roles. Titled as, ‘Bienvenidos a la Familia’, the series will follow two single and erratic mothers Cristina and Luciana who are done with their misfortunes in life. It is with this setting that the series begins. Soon the complication arises when in a family dispute, Cristina’s father, and Luciana’s current husband, Gonzalo (who is nicknamed as “the tyrant”) falls dead in front of them. The unexpected occurrence now puts the two woman in the suspects list and must join forces and put their differences aside to hide the body, and forge the will. Except, their plan is not fool proof with the looming threat of the gossipy neighbor, a lovesick cop, and a psychotic ex-football coach finding out that Gonzalo is dead through their peculiarly timed intrusion.
