Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Latino comic actor Luis Guzman starred in this eponymously titled sitcom as the owner of a donut shop and landlord of an apartment building, both located in Spanish Harlem. When dealing with his sharp-tongued, ethnically mixed tenants, co-workers, and loved ones, Luis demonstrated that he could give back as good as he got -- most of the time. The supporting cast included Diana-Maria Riva as Luis' ex-wife, Isabella, who hung around mostly to dispense insults and gobble down her former hubby's donuts; Jaclyn DeSantis as Luis' daughter, Marly, a level-headed type except when it came to her boyfriend, indolent "artist" Greg (Charlie Day); Charlie Day as Luis' assistant Richie, who carried a torch for Marly; and Malcolm Barrett as TK, a glib wheeler-dealer who spent most of his time trying to sell "valuable" merchandise which he'd recently fished out of the neighborhood dumpsters. Created and produced by Will Gluck, Luis made its FOX network bow on September 19, 2003.
