International streams: Disney Plus via Star (CA, UK, AU)

Pitting hugs versus mugshots, Julio tries to reform ex-gang members working for a non-profit group: encouraging big boned, heavily tatted men and women to practice yoga and bake cupcakes in pink aprons. He’s seen as a bit of a soft-touch – a “punk-ass b***h” is how the participants phrase it, because he's still living at home and highly averse to confrontation. Maybe living with Luis will toughen him up!

In addition to starring, Estrada created and wrote the show for Hulu – determined to represent more Latinx talent on its streaming service – while the series’ executive producers include the brains behind workplace satire Corporate, and Portlandia’s Fred Armisen (who appears in just about everything!)

Also starring Michelle Ortiz (Gentefied) as Maggie and Julia Vera (Will & Grace, My Name is Earl) as Maria, This Fool should be hilarious and the perfect vehicle to showcase Estrada’s comedic talents. Just read on below as we explain how to watch This Fool online now – exclusively on Hulu in the US.
