Fred Armisen, Horatio Sanz Launch Latino-Focused Comedy Channel

Saturday Night Live alums Fred Armisen and Horatio Sanz have teamed up with their old boss and comedy maven Lorne Michaels for their latest project, Más Mejor.

The new digital comedy studio, an offshoot of Michaels’ Broadway Video productions, has recently released a handful of content guided by the motto “More Voices, More Better.”

The channel’s content, targeted at the Latino-millennial community, will largely consist of short form video and editorial programming to be distributed across several social and digital platforms. Armisen and Sanz will write material for featured comedians, in addition to running the channel. NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises is a distribution partner for the network.

According to Armisen, his involvement with the project started when Above Average, an arm of Michaels’ Broadway Video, decided to launch a Latino version of the humor-based video production company.

“It’s part of Broadway Video and they have a company called Above Average,” Armisen told Marketplace Studios on Monday. “They do a lot of online content and comedy, so they’re launching a Latino version of it—some Spanish-speaking and some bilingual content comedy. And Lorne [Michaels] and the company asked me to get involved.”
