Watch: Julio Torres Is Looking for a Pearl Earring in HBO Series 'Fantasmas'

Emell Adolphus READ TIME: 1 MIN.

After the success of 2023's "Problemista," Julio Torres is back with another eclectic tale to tell in the new HBO comedy series "Fantasmas."

As reported by Deadline, the series follows Julio, as a character named Julio, as he embarks on an adventure to find a precious oyster earring.

Why oyster? Why an earring? From the looks of the trailer, it's all a part of Torres' world of weirdness as he explores an alternate New York City full of eerie and comedic scenes.

The six-episode series hits HBO on June 7, with a new episode weekly.

Torres created, directed, and executive produced, Deadline reports. He also stars alongside Martine Gutierrez as Vanesja, Julio's agent; Tomàs Matos as Chester, a ride share driver; and Joe Rumrill as the voice of Bibo, Julio's robotic assistant. Many guest stars appear in the six-episode series, including Steve Buscemi, Paul Dano, Julia Fox, Alexa Demie, Emma Stone, Aidy Bryant, Bowen Yang, Kim Petras, and Ziwe.
