YANQUI is an edgy, cross-cultural romantic comedy series about love after pregnancy, geographically-challenged romance, and modern parenthood. It’s a tango with four left feet. A fish-out-of- water love story set in The City of Fury. A series about what it means to become a parent while still figuring out how to be an adult. YANQUI will be filmed in Buenos Aires and New York, toggle freely between English and Spanish dialogue, and feature una mezcla of American and Argentine talent. Inspired by actual events and proof that truth can be stranger/funnier than fiction, this story has a happy ending but a very (very) bumpy road to get there.
