'Chichipatos': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about Netflix's new Colombian comedy series
Neflix is releasing its second Colombian original production with this series
Magic is all fun and entertainment when it doesn’t lead the magician into trouble. Translated as ‘The Unremarkable Juanquini’ in English, the goofy and campy comedy explores the misadventures of a funny and “not so great” magician and how his magic leads to mishaps.
‘Chichipatos’/ ‘The Unremarkable Juanquini’ will release with all seven episodes together on May 15, 2020, only on Netflix.
The comedy series ‘Chichipatos’ follows the story of magician Juan Morales (Antonio Sanint). He is funny, silly and everything but a magician with skills and his family is embarrassed of him. But then Juan decides to get himself together and pulls off a trick that will change his life, for better or for worse. While hired for a party by a drug cartel, he finds himself in deep trouble when he accidentally makes the gang lord disappear. And now, he has to pay for his silly mistake and get back the most wanted criminal and help the police.
The official synopsis of Netflix says: “An inept magician pulls off the trick of his life: accidentally disappearing a wanted criminal during a police raid. Now he's going to pay for that.”
